Working with Axis Titles
title or a slide title, but not both, this could vary if you have multiple charts or different
content on the same slide.
You can select a basic chart title, either above the chart or overlapping it, from the Chart
Title submenu from the Add Chart Element button’s menu, as shown in Figure 12.13. You
can also drag the chart title around after placing it. For more options, you can choose More
Title Options from the bottom of the submenu to open the Format Chart Title task pane.
However, in this dialog box there is nothing that specifi cally relates to chart titles; the
available options are for formatting (Fill, Border, and so on), as for any text box.
Working with Axis Titles
An axis title is text that defi nes the category or the unit of measurement on an axis. For
example, in Figure 12.12, the vertical axis title is Thousands of Units.
Axis titles are defi ned separately for the vertical and the horizontal axes. Click Chart Tools
Axis Titles and then select either Primary
Horizontal or Primary Vertical to toggle one or the other on or off. Alternatively, you can
click the Chart Elements button to the right of the chart frame and mark the Axis Titles
check box to turn both of them on at once or point to the right-pointing arrow and then mark
or clear the Primary Horizontal and Primary Vertical check boxes individually, as shown in
Figure 12.16. When you turn on an axis title, a text box appears containing default place-
holder text, “Axis Title.” Click in this text box and type your own label to replace it.

Add Chart Element
If you turn off an axis title and then turn it back on again, you will need to retype the axis title; it returns to the
generic placeholder text.
If you’ve plotted any data on a secondary axis, you’ll see Secondary Horizontal and
Secondary Vertical Axis Title options as well on the submenu.
