Modify item appearance

After you add an item to the charting surface, you can modify its appearance from the default style that is specified by the chart. You can emphasize items on the charting surface, and present only the most crucial data on the charting surface.

To emphasize an item, you might add an icon frame, increase the size of the item, or add a bold or italic style to the item text.

To present only the most crucial item data on the charting surface, you can select which properties are displayed. For example, you can choose to display only grades, source type, and the value of specific attributes.

To remove irrelevant or less important data from view, you might hide those chart items. To place a lower emphasis on those items instead of removing them, you can reveal the hidden items in gray.
