Editing and moving elements of the graph or chart

In Figure 66 the legend has a gray background and it uses too much space on the right-hand side of the figure. We can change the background of the legend by Format > Legend > Area and choosing a color. We will pick white.

There are two ways to move the legend. When we inserted the legend we were offered a choice of four different positions for the legend, Top, Bottom, Left, Right.

It is also possible to move various elements of a chart or graph; the main chart area, the legend, the main title or the axes labels by clicking on Edit, selecting them with the mouse and dragging them. This is what we did inFigure 67, moving the main body of the graph and the x-axis label up and to the right and then moving the legend and the title.
