CHART TOOLS
DESIGN tab
the CHART TOOLS tab
and its related subordinate
DESIGN and FORMAT
tabs appear, collectively
referred to as the CHART
TOOLS DESIGN tab and
CHART TOOLS FORMAT
tab. When you are nished
working with the chart, the
contextual tabs disappear from
the ribbon. Excel and other
office apps determine when
tool tabs should appear and
disappear based on tasks you
perform. Some tool tabs, such
as the PICTURE TOOLS
tab, have only one related
subordinate tab.
Items on the ribbon
include buttons, boxes, and
galleries (shown in Figures 14
and 15). A gallery is a set of
choices, often graphical, arranged
in a grid or in a list. You can scroll
through choices in a gallery by
tapping or clicking the gallery’s
scroll arrows. Or, you can tap or
click a gallery’s More button to
view more gallery options on the
screen at a time.
Some buttons and boxes
have arrows that, when tapped
or clicked, also display a
gallery; others always cause a
gallery to be displayed when
tapped or clicked. Most galleries
support live preview , which is
a feature that allows you to point to a gallery choice
and see its effect in the document — without actually
selecting the choice (Figure 16). Live preview works
only if you are using a mouse; if you are using a touch
screen, you will not be able
to view live previews.
Some commands on the ribbon display an image
to help you remember their function. When you
point to a command on the ribbon, all or part of the
command glows in a shade of blue, and a ScreenTip
appears on the screen. A  ScreenTip is an on-screen
note that provides the name of the command, available
keyboard shortcut(s), a description of the command, and
sometimes instructions for how to obtain help about
the command (Figure 17).
