3. Click a different chart, and click Set as Default, at the bottom of the Change
Chart dialog box.
4. Click OK, and the chart you’ve selected will spring to the screen whenever you
select a chart range and tap F11—in any workbook, not just the one in which
you changed the default.
Done deal.
The Layout Tab
Among other things, the Layout tab helps you introduce and reposition new and existing chart objects,
such as a chart title, the chart legend, and axis titles (not there by default). It also contains a basic
formatting command option, which you’ll also find on the Formatting tab (Figure 5-39):
Figure 5–39. The Format Selection option
Format Selection is an important option, and appears elsewhere in charting activity in different
guises. Any chart object—say, a data series—can be reformatted by clicking that object and choosing
Format Selection. Note: If you want to reformat just one data series—say, the color of the column bar for
exam 5, just click any one of the bars in that series, and all the others will follow suit (Figure 5-40):
