Working with Axis Titles
You can easily select all of the placeholder text by clicking in the text box and pressing Ctrl+A.
For more control, choose More Options from the submenu, or right-click the axis title and
choose Format Axis Title, to open the Format Axis Title task pane.
Look back at Figure 12.12 and notice that the vertical axis title runs sideways from top to
bottom. You can change the text’s orientation for an axis by doing the following:
1. Right-click the vertical axis title and choose Format Axis Title. The Format Axis
Title task pane opens.
2. Click Title Options, and then click the Size & Properties icon. The Alignment
controls appear. See Figure 12.17.
Select a text direction from the task pane.
