Add and delete a chart

You can display your data using 2D, 3D, and interactive charts.

When you create a chart, you first select a chart type, and then you enter data for the chart in the Chart Data Editor. When you make changes in the Chart Data Editor, the chart updates automatically.

Create a chart

  1. Click Chart in the toolbar, then select a type of chart; click the tabs at the top of the pop-up menu to see 2D, 3D, or interactive chart options.

    If you add a 3D chart, you see a rotation control at its center. Drag this control at any time to adjust the chart’s orientation.

  2. Click Edit Chart Data.

    The Chart Data Editor appears with placeholder data.

  3. Enter your own data in the Chart Data Editor.

    You can add numbers, dates, or durations in the data cells. To format the numbers, use the Value Labels pop-up menu in the Series pane of the Format inspector.

  4. To change whether rows or columns are plotted as data series, click one of the buttons at the top-right corner of the Chart Data Editor.

Delete a chart
