Exploding a Pie Chart

You can explode (separate) the slices from a pie chart for emphasis. The exploded slices look as if they were cut out from the pie and moved slightly outward from its center.

  1. If you want to explode a specific slice or slices, select them. If no slices are selected, the Chart Editor explodes all slices.
  2. From the menus choose:

    Elements > Explode Slice

  3. To undo the explosion, select the pie chart and then choose from the menus:

Elements > Return Slice
