Chapter 10: Charming Charts and Gorgeous Graphics
After you select a title, you can click the insertion point in the text and then
edit as you would any worksheet text or you can click to select the title, type
the new title, and press Enter to completely replace it with the text you type.
To force part of the title onto a new line, click the insertion point at the place
in the text where the line break is to occur. After the insertion point is
positioned in the title, press Enter to start a new line.
After you finish editing the title, click somewhere else on the chart area to
deselect it (or a worksheet cell if you’ve finished formatting and editing the
chart).
Formatting the chart titles
When you add titles to your chart, Excel uses the Calibri (Body) font for the
chart title (in 14-point size) and the x- and y-axis (in 10-point size). To change
the font used in a title or any of its attributes, select the title and then use the
appropriate command buttons in the mini-toolbar that appears next to the
selected title or from the Font group on the Home tab.
Use Live Preview to see how a particular font or font size for the selected
chart title looks in the chart before you select it. Simply click the Font or Font
Size drop-down buttons and then highlight different font names or sizes to
have the selected chart title appear in them.
If you need to change other formatting options for the titles in the chart, you
can do so using the command buttons on the Format tab of the Chart Tools
contextual tab. To format the entire text box that contains the title, click one
of the following buttons in the Shape Styles group:
Shape Styles thumbnail in its drop-down gallery to format both the text
and text box for the selected chart title
Shape Fill button to select a new color for the text box containing the
selected chart title from its drop-down palette
Shape Outline button to select a new color for the outline of the text
box for the selected chart text from its drop-down palette
Shape Effects button to apply a new effect (Shadow, Reflection, Glow,
Soft Edges, and so on) to the text box containing the selected chart title
from its drop-down list
To format just the text in chart titles, click one of the buttons in the WordArt
Styles group:
WordArt Styles thumbnail in its drop-down gallery to apply a new
WordArt style to the text of the selected chart title
