OpenOffice Calc 3.x Guide

Use the Appearance page to modify some aspects of a 3D chart’s appearance.

Modifying appearance of 3D chart

Select a scheme from the list box. When you select a scheme, the options and the light sources are set accordingly. If you mark or unmark a combination of options that is not given by the Realistic or Simple schemes, you create a Custom scheme.

Select Shading to use the Gouraud method for rendering the surface, otherwise a flat method is used. The flat method sets a single color and brightness for each polygon. The edges are visible, soft gradients and spot lights are not possible. The Gouraud method applies gradients for a smoother, more realistic look. Refer to the Draw Guide for more details on shading.

Select Object Borders to draw lines along the edges.

Select Rounded Edges to smooth the edges of box shapes. In some cases this option is not available.
