Adding a 3-D Pie Chart to the Workbook EX 211
To Apply a 3-D Format to the Pie Chart
Excel allows you to apply dramatic 3-D visual effects to charts. The chart shown in Figure 3–59 could be enhanced
with a bevel along the top edge. A bevel is a curve that is applied to soften the appearance of a straight edge. Excel also
allows you to change the appearance of the material from which the surface of the chart appears to be constructed. The
following steps apply a bevel to the chart and change the surface of the chart to a softer-looking material.
