This weekend, let us talk … umm… charts. I want to know if you absolutely make sure your charts look good everytime you sent them out to someone. I do this most of the time.
My usual chart sex up routine is,
- Remove the background
- Add labels and remove grid lines and legend
- Highlight necessary data and set some dull color to the rest (if needed)
- Change fonts, most often change them to Verdana
- Format axis and axis labels
Of course, I don’t do this every time. Instead I use some user defined charts and save tons of time.
How do you sex up your charts? or you say “not tonight honey” to them.
