Corner point
Figure 10-8 Change the shape of freeform objects by dragging the vertex handles that appear
when you click a point.
Excel offers three types of points. You can right-click any existing point and change it to a
different type of point by using the corresponding command on the shortcut menu:
Straight Point Creates a gradual transition between the lines lowing out from
either side, which can be unequal, and displays vertex handles when selected. You
can drag each vertex handle separately. The longer the vertex handle, the more
gradual the curve on that side of the point.
Smooth Point Lines lowing out from either side of a smooth point are equally
curved and display vertex handles of equal length when you select them. Drag a
vertex handle, and the opposite handle moves equally in the opposite direction, creating
an equal curve on either side of the point.
Corner Point Creates an abrupt transition between the lines lowing out from
either side, and displays vertex handles when selected that can be dragged
separately. The Scribble button always creates corner points.
Working with text boxes
Click the Text Box button in the Text group on the Insert tab to add notes, headings,
legends, and other text to your worksheets and charts to give them more impact or to clarify
the data you’re presenting.
Click the Text Box button, point to a location on your worksheet, and drag to create a box.
A blinking pointer appears in the box, indicating that you can begin typing. After you
finish, you can select and format text using the same commands you use for text in cells.
When you select a text box, drag any of its eight perimeter handles to resize it.
