Exploding a Piece of the Pie
Note: For help with these instructions, see the image example above.
To add emphasis to a particular piece of the pie you can move or "explode" this slice out from the rest of the chart.
- Click with the mouse pointer on chart to highlight it. Small dark blocks should be visible on the outside edge of the pie.
- Click a second time with the mouse pointer on the yellow (oatmeal raisin) slice of the pie. The dark blocks should now surround just this single slice of pie.
- Click and drag to the left with the mouse pointer on the yellow slice of the pie. The slice should move away from the rest of the chart.
- To move the exploded slice back to its original location repeat steps 1 and 2 above and then drag the slice back to the pie. It will automatically return to its original location.
With the yellow slice exploded your chart should match the pie chart shown in Step 1 of this tutorial.Return to the Index page
