Chart Builder

The Chart Builder allows you to create new charts or modify the appearance of existing charts using a drag-and-drop interface and customizable settings.

The Chart Builder is presented in the Create Chart window and consists of a number of panels. These panels allow you to configure the type of chart, the columns of data to be plotted, and a number of customizable settings such as the size of the chart, its background color, title, theme, axes, ticks, and legend. Any changes with respect to these settings are reflected immediately in the chart.

The chart is displayed in the center panel and is surrounded by panels to the left, right, and bottom. These panels include the following:

These panels can be individually hidden from view (or shown, if currently hidden) using the toggle buttons on the menu bar or the splitter toggles, which are located in the center of each of the panel dividers.

The Chart Builder operates in full mode, wherein it occupies the full real estate beneath the Tables and Worksheets Toolbar in your 1010data session. You can also view the chart in compact mode by clicking the icon in the top right corner of the Create Chart window (or by double-clicking on the title bar). In this mode, the chart panel is displayed in a floating window that can be moved within your 1010data session. This can be helpful when working with the corresponding table or worksheet, as the results of any changes to the table, such as selections, are reflected immediately in the Create Chart window.

If you lose visibility of the Create Chart window in compact mode, you can press either Shift+Left Arrow or Shift+Right Arrow to cycle through the various windows open in your 1010data session until the Create Chart window is visible again.

The Create Chart window can be hidden while in compact mode by clicking the icon in the top right corner, so that only the title bar of the Create Chart window is visible. To show the window again, click the icon.

If you are viewing a chart in compact mode, you can click the in the top right corner of the Create Chart window to return to full mode (or double-click on the title bar).
