This tutorial divided into two parts, the first part explain in detail to create a chart.Part 2 and the chart provided to explain a custom chart.
AI is not only powerful graphics capabilities, but also has powerful processing capabilities chart.
Expand the Chart Tools group.
Chart Tools included in the group from the left as follows: the tool bar graph, a stacked graph tool, the tool bar graph, stacked bar graph tool, line tool charts, area charts tool, scatter charts like tool, tool Pie , radar-like charting tools.
# Tool bar graph: rectangular strip arranged side by side with some of the data to represent the height proportional to the size and variety of data, rectangular column.
# Stacked bar chart tool: Similar to a bar chart tool, but a rectangular strip is superimposed together by category.With this chart, it can well reflect the relationship of parts to the whole.
# Tool bar graph: similar bar graph tool, but it ceased to be a rectangular vertical display, but the display is horizontal.
# Stacked bar chart tool: a stacked bar chart is similar to the tool, but stacked vertically to the horizontal direction of the rectangular strip stacking direction.
# Line chart tool: used to represent one or more groups of data, using a series of fold lines connecting points.The use of large amounts of data in a variety of industries chart.
# Area charting tools: tools similar to the line chart, the chart tool stressed that the overall change in value.
# Scatter chart-like tools: a coordinate value to determine the composition of the data points plotted, a process variable may be displayed to affect the other of.Mode may also be determined or a change tendency data.
# Pie tool: a circle graph is displayed, showing the percentage of each numerical embodiment.
Radar-like tool Chart #: multiple sets of input data distributed in it an annular coil.Some poor performance for data conversion and their distribution in a reasonable annular region.
The first part explain in detail to create a chart.
Select tool bar graph toolbox, drag a rectangular area on the page to set the size of the chart.
Or anywhere on the page, click the left mouse button, the pop charts dialog box, enter the width and height of the chart, the set up, click OK, it will automatically create a chart on the page.While pop chart data box.
Chart Data dialog box
# Text dialog box in the upper left corner (7) may be directly various text or numeric type, then press the TAB key on the keyboard or the ENTER key.Text or numerical data is automatically added to the chart dialog grid members.Click individual cells may be selected, or the value of the input text with the mouse, press ENTER OK.
# In the upper right corner of the chart data box has a set of buttons.
Data input button (1) can input data from an external file information.
Swap rows and columns button (2) the horizontal and vertical position data exchange.
Swap buttons X and Y axes (3) to exchange X-axis and Y-axis position.
Resume button (5) in the absence click the Apply button (6) before the data in the text box to return to a previous state..
Apply button (6) confirm the input and generate charts.
Unit format like button (4) The cell style pop-up dialog box
In the dialog input value required, you can control the width and position of the decimal point of the column of figures.
Further, when the mouse pointer is placed at the intersection of each of the cells, the mouse cursor changes shape.In this case, drag the mouse to adjust the width of the individual digital fields.
Double-click the chart tool, the Chart Type dialog box pops up, here are some charting options and styles.
# Chart Data dialog box, enter the data in a spreadsheet organization.For example, to compare students'' average scores three cases:
Click the Apply button data, generate graphs, typed be applied to the chart.Can be seen from the figure, the data is a bar graph comparing each row.
In the dialog box, click the chart data exchange rows and columns button to swap the ranks of the data to get a new bar chart
# When you need to modify the data in the chart, first select the chart you want to modify, then select the menu bar of the object - Chart - data.Pop-up dialog box chart data.Data can be modified in the dialog box set up the data, click the Apply button, the edited data is applied to the selected chart.
Other charts effect
# Stacked bar chart, bar graph shows a comparison of a single data, comparing the sum of all of the data in the stacked bar graph display.Therefore, when comparing the total amount of data is performed, the use of a stacked graph represented
As can be seen from the chart, the value of a stacked graph comparing the total amount of each quarter, and a quarter of each display a different color.
# Stacked bar graph and bar graph, analogous, but in a vertical direction of the display bar graph of each group of data in the chart, and the bar graph to display the data in a horizontal direction of.

Part 2 and the chart provided to explain a custom chart.
AI can rearrange the options of various types of charts, can change a set of data, can also be put in contact with a combination of the chart, the application stroke or fill color.
Tutorial recurring menu shown in Figure
Chart Settings dialog box #.
Select the chart you want to modify, click the right mouse button in the pop-up menu, select (Data) Command.Selection menu or directly (object) - (Chart) - (Data).Chart dialog box will pop up, you can modify data.
Can select a cell, enter new data or delete data in the text box, press ENTER OK.
# Change Graph Options
Select the chart you want to modify, and then double-click the chart tool or select (Object) - (chart) - (type).Chart Type dialog box will pop up.
Drop-down menu at the top select from a list of chart options dialog, drop-down menu and then click on the value axis, comprising (left) (right).(Both) are three options, are used to represent the position of the chart axis, can be selected according to.This option is not available pie chart.
Options include the group and the group of the width of column width option 2, are used to control map groups and wide column width.Column width is the width of each column in the bar graph.Group refers to a wide cylindrical space occupied by all.
Option group line chart and scatter graph like FIG.
Marker data points so that the data points appear as a square, or the middle point of a straight segment of data is not displayed.
Is connected between each data point in the data connection points, or only displaying one isolated point.
Align the line around the line extending from the right and left of the graph, the graph of the scattered manner had no effect.
Drawing filled line width activates check box below the value.

Legend - Legend of the display control
Drop-down list includes: No legend - table
# Set the coordinate axes
Select the top of the chart type of drop-down list box (the axis value) option, a new pop-up dialog box, as shown in
Scale option group: When checked (calc ignored), the following three values box is activated.
Minimum - axis represents the starting value, i.e. the origin of the coordinate values of the graph, not be greater than
(Maximum) parameter values.
Max - maximum scale value represents the coordinate axis.
Interval - The value used to determine how much of the coordinate axes into.
Tick mark length :() drop-down list comprising 3 - No - not using tick marks represents
Short - short tick mark represents.
The entire width - Chart scale throughout the
Value (drawing) of each box represents a coordinate axis spaced differentiator.
Add tags include: (prefix), (suffix).Prefix refers to a plus sign in front values.After numerical suffix means plus
Kg are input and the prefix and suffix days option.Figure:
AI addition to creating and editing a chart of the basic operations, but can also be edited and modified locally in the chart, and the chart patterns can be defined, so that the performance of the data table more vivid.
Custom chart pattern #

You can now customize the pattern onto the chart.
Select the chart you want to apply.Then select the menu (Object) - (chart) - (bar chart) command, the pop-up dialog box
Type: the type comprising a scale pattern 4
Vertical scaling - shows a size of the data, custom chart pattern is enlarged vertical direction and fan
Narrow, horizontal direction remains unchanged.
Scaling - to scale the pattern of a graph in conjunction with the size of the data in the chart pattern put on
Local scaling - you can stretch or compress the part of the pattern.
Repeat - Repeat options and to (each design represents units), (incomplete pattern) option in conjunction with.
Each design represents a unit - representing each pattern represent several units, if the input 2, 1 denotes in FIG.
Case on behalf of two units.
Incomplete pattern drop-down list - cut design - a pattern of inadequate representation part of the pattern
Zoom design - represents a pattern is insufficient, by the last
Compression ratio is represented as a pattern.
