You can modify and format a chart to get the effect you want. If you don’t want to spend
a lot of time on individual chart elements, you can apply styles (predeined combinations
of formatting) to the chart area (the entire chart) to create sophisticated charts with a
minimum of effort. These styles include the following:
Chart styles Combinations of data marker, wall, and floor ill colors, background
color, and bevel effects
Shape styles Combinations of shape ills, shape outlines, and shape effects
WordArt styles Combinations of text ills, text outlines, and text effects
You can also apply shape style and WordArt style components individually, both to the
chart area and to a selected chart element.
In addition to using styles and style components, you can fine-tune the formatting of a
selected chart element in its Format pane.
Each type of element has a specific Format pane. Most panes have multiple pages
presenting options such as the following:
Chart area You can specify the background ill, the border color and style, effects
such as shadows and edges, the 3-D format and rotation, and the size and position.
You can also attach text to be displayed when someone points to the chart.
Plot area You can specify the background ill, the border color and style, effects
such as shadows and edges, and the 3-D format and rotation.
