A chart element is a graphic element (for example, a bar), an axis, a grouping zone, or one of the optional elements (such as titles and footnotes). In other words, elements are all of the items that you add to the chart. You can edit these elements by modifying their properties. For example, you can change the statistic that controls the bar height, reorder of the categories on a categorical axis, or transform the axis scale.
To modify the element properties:
- Click the Element Properties tab in the side bar of the Chart Builder. (If the side bar is not displayed, click the button in the upper right corner of the Chart Builder to display the side bar.)
- In the Edit Properties Of list, select the element that you want to modify.
