and toolbars. See Figure 1-10.

Now you can modify the chart. The chart is a 3-D pie chart, and you want to rotate it so
that the Lifestyles pie wedge appears in front. You do this using the 3-D View dialog box.
2. Click Chart on the menu bar, and then click 3-D View . The 3-D View dialog box opens. See

The Rotation text box shows the current value of 0, and the chart preview shows the
median line pointing straight up. You want to move the Lifestyles wedge from the right
side of the pie to the front of the pie, so you need to move the median line clockwise, from
the right to the left.
