Working with SmartArt Graphics
A SmartArt graphic is a customizable diagram that you use to pictorially present lists,
processes, and relationships. For example, the manufacturing process to produce an
item can be illustrated with a SmartArt graphic. Excel includes seven types of SmartArt
graphics: List, Process, Cycle, Hierarchy, Relationship, Matrix, and Pyramid. Each type
of graphic includes several layouts, or templates, from which to choose. After selecting
a SmartArt graphic type and layout, you customize the graphic to meet your needs and
present your information and ideas in a compelling manner.

Why should I turn
off gridlines?

during the process of
creating a worksheet, many spreadsheet specialists remove the gridlines to reduce the clutter on the screen. This is especially
true when working with graphics and images on a worksheet.
