After you have inserted a chart to your visual, you may want to customize your chart elements by setting them to fit your design needs. Here's how!
To edit your chart's title:
If you wish to show a reference legend for your charts, you'll need to turn it On/Off in the Chart Settings:
Click your chart to open the Charts Settings > Select Charts Settings tab.
Adjust the placement of your legend to appear either at the bottom, top, right or left of your chart.
You can also set the color of the legend from the color tab easily.
You can customize the same for your chart axis!
Simply toggle On the Axis Titles, and insert the text for both the X and Y-axis.
You can also customize the color of the axes title color, as well as set the minimum and maximum value of the labels accordingly.
Setting Minimum and Maximum Value
You may want to set a minimum or maximum value for an axis in your chart so you can reflect data in the way you want it.
Here's a list of the types of charts on which you can set the maximum/minimum axis values:
- Vertical bar chart: y-axis only
- Triangle bar chart: y-axis only
- Horizontal bar chart: x-axis only
- Line chart: y-axis only
- Area chart: y-axis only
- Dot chart: y-axis only
- Scatter plot: x-axis and y-axis
The labels will automatically adjust to the available space.
The custom minimum/maximum values of a chart are independent of any value in the grid. This allows you to reflect data in the way you want it. The value for the minimum/maximum is allowed to be higher or lower than the lowest/highest value. You can include decimal values and adjust the scale/axis accordingly.
Chart Grid Lines
This feature is enabled by default. However, you may access the options to turn them ON or OFF according to your preferences.
From the Chart Settings, click Advanced Settings to view more controls option.
Toggle on the Grid button.
You may also customize the color of your grid line accordingly.
You can also set data formats in your chart. For example, if you want to display the number format in your chart with a decimal point, a comma, or without any decimal separators, you can do so by clicking on Chart Settings > Data Format > select the format.
