What is displayed on
the screen?
Two panes are added
to the worksheet.
The left pane is the
Text pane. The Text
pane is displayed
only when the chart
is selected. The Text
pane includes one
line for each box in
the chart and allows
you to add text to
the chart quickly.
The right pane is the
SmartArt graphic
with the Hierarchy
type and the
Organization Chart
layout. The chart is
displayed over the
data in the work-
sheet, but it will be
repositioned in the
following steps.

Drag the Text pane to the right side of the chart (Figure 5).
Why should I drag the Text pane to the right side of the chart?
The chart will be widened further to the left. If the Text pane remains on the left side of the chart, then it will display on
top of the resized chart and obscure the view of the chart.
