Formatting the Data Series
The Right Angle Axes check box (in the Format Plot Area task pane) is very important when
setting chart rotation for most chart types. If the Right Angle Axes option is enabled, the
chart axes do not rotate — only the data bars (or other shapes) rotate. If Right Angle Axes
is disabled, the entire content of the plot area rotates together as a whole, including the
axes. Figure 12.39 shows a rotated chart where Right Angle Axes is turned off, and Figure
12.40 shows a rotated chart where it is turned on.
Right Angle Axes is disabled, and both X Rotation and Y Rotation are set to 30°.
