3. Open the Text Direction drop-down list and choose the desired text direction.
Horizontal. The title appears horizontally, like regular text, to the left of the
vertical axis.
Rotate All Text 90°. The title appears vertically along the vertical axis, with
the letters rotated 90 degrees (so that their bases run along the axis from top to
bottom).
Rotate All Text 270°. The title appears vertically along the vertical axis, with
the letters rotated 270 degrees (so that their bases run along the axis from bot-
tom to top).
Stacked. The title appears vertically along the vertical axis, but each letter
remains unrotated, so that the letters are stacked one on top of the other.
Figure 12.18 shows some examples.

Each type of vertical axis shrinks the chart somewhat when you activate it, but the
Horizontal option shrinks the chart more than the others because it requires more space to
the left of the chart.
Working with Legends
The legend is the little box that appears next to the chart (or sometimes above or below
it). It provides the key that describes what the different colors or patterns mean. For some
chart types and labels, you may not fi nd the legend to be useful. If it is not useful for the

Click the legend box to select it and press the Delete key on the keyboard.
Click Chart Tools Design
