Changing Chart Titles
Changing Chart Titles
The layout of a chart typically comes with a chart title, axis titles, and a legend. However,
you can also include other elements, such as data labels, and a data table. You can show,
hide, or change the positions of these elements to achieve the look you want. The chart
title typically appears at the top of the chart. However, you can change the title position to
appear as an overlap text object on top of the chart. When you position the chart title as an
overlay, the chart is resized to the maximum allowable size. In the same way, you can also
reposition horizontal and vertical axis titles to achieve the best fit in a chart. If you want a
more custom look, you can set individual options using the Format pane ( New ! ).
