Moving chart elements

You may wish to move or resize individual elements of a chart, independent of other chart elements. For example, you may wish to move the legend to a different place. Pie charts allow moving of individual wedges of the pie (in addition to the choice of “exploding” the entire pie).

  1. Double-click the chart so that is enclosed by a gray border.
  2. Click any of the elements—the title, the legend, or the chart graphic—to select it. Green resizing handles appear.
  3. Move the pointer over the selected element. When it changes shape, click and drag to move the element.
  4. Release the mouse button when the element is in the desired position.

You cannot resize or reposition the graphic while the round red handles are showing. With the round red handles showing, Shift + Click to get the green resizing handles. You can now resize and reposition your 3D chart graphic. See the following tip.
Image:Tip.png You can resize the chart graphic using its green resizing handles (Shift + Click, then drag a corner handle to maintain the proportions). However, you cannot resize the title or the key.
