Chapter 6. Inserting Charts and Related ... > Formatting an Organization Chart

Formatting an Organization Chart

You can format the text and appearance of an organization chart with the same tools you use for other PowerPoint objects. You can change the chart style, rearrange chart boxes, or edit names in the chart boxes to match the organization of the company. The current chart type appears in the traditional style, one manager at the top with subordinates below. You can use the AutoFormat button on the Organization Chart toolbar to change the chart style. You can also change the chart box color, shadow, border style, border color, or border line style by clicking commands on the Drawing toolbar. Remember to use formatting wisely and keep in mind the overall design of your presentation.
