You can follow the question or vote as helpful, but you cannot reply to this thread. I have the same question 6.
Microsoft Agent. The detailed steps for us to reproduce the issue.
Does the issue occur on other Office programs? A screenshot of your Word application version and a screenshot of the mac OS version. Thanks, Ran.
Thanks for marking this as the answer. Read on as we explain, step-by-step, how to extract only charts from MS Excel spreadsheet and save them to a Portable Document Format. The simplest and straightforward workflow to export Excel chart to PDF is this:. Step 1: Open the Excel file containing the graph you would like to convert. Step 2: Locate the graph and click on it to make a selection make sure to click on the white space to select the whole chart and not just an element inside of it.
A thick, opaque border should appear outlining chart area.
Finally, click on the Save button to export the chart to PDF. If you followed these steps, you might have noticed that the exported chart is placed on a PDF page that is sized according to whatever the Page size is set to in the Excel Page Layout panel.
More often than not, users would like to get rid of all that extra white space around the graph. The Minimum , Maximum , Major unit , and Minor unit will always be defaulted to Auto , however, you can change the values in the text boxes thereby altering the size of the vertical axis. Here we changed the Minimum from 0 to and the Major unit to which increased the number of gridlines. Be sure to note that the Major unit can never be smaller than the Minor unit. I could alter the axis to focus in on those three. The apparent pattern changes when we zoom in.
Of course, if I wanted to present these changes I would also remove the other data points returning to Select Data and re-selecting the relevant data. As with the horizontal axis options, you can alter the Major tick mark type , Minor tick mark type , and the Axis labels. Again, use your discretion when experimenting with these features. Alignment allows you to change the alignment of the text as well as the orientation horizontal, rotated, stacked. With all of the formatting options in the Format Axis dialogue boxes for the vertical and horizontal axes, they do not allow you to add axis titles.
To add axis titles you must go to the Layout tab under the Charts toolbar and select Axis Titles in the Labels group. As with the chart title, after selecting insert we can type the title in the formula bar and after pressing ENTER it will appear where the box currently says Axis Title.
There are many options for formatting changes which I encourage you to explore. You can move the axis titles or delete them just like with chart titles. Questions, comments, concerns?
