Chart Display Settings Form

This can be accessed via the ‘sliders’ icon, next to the cog icon on the bottom right hand corner of each chart container. Text and statistic/percentage panels do not currently have this.


You can manually update each series in the chart here. Any changes to individual series colours will overwrite the defaults set for the tab in the Tab Managers. 


You can also change the font sizes of the text on the chart too. The setting here will differ from chart to chart eg some charts do not have a Legend and so for those charts the legend typography setting will not appear. The X-axis typography setting will always change the text of the axis that has the text or date labels, this is not always the line along the bottom. The Y-axis typography setting will always change the text of the axis that measures the data and is not always the line that runs along the left hand side. Eg. a ‘horizontal’ bar chart has the x-axis along the left side and the ‘y-axis’ along the bottom, whilst  ‘vertical’ bar chart has the y-axis along the left side and the ‘x-axis’ along the bottom.


Datalabels are the numbers that appear by each data point on a series.


Tooltips are info text that appears when you hover over a specific part of a series.


In the ‘miscellaneous’ section of the form you can choose to show or hide datalabels, swap between black and white datalabels and change the thickness of the series. The series thickness controls how much space the series graphics take up on the chart. On some charts this has no effect and this option is not included.
