Once you’ve inserted a chart into your presentation, customize its appearance to adjust the way your data is interpreted and displayed. Most charts have similar customization options, but some features vary depending on the chart type used.
To start, right-click and select Edit chart in the context toolbar.
To change the chart type, click the thumbnail of your current chart type located in the top-right corner of the chart editor. Then, choose a chart type that best displays your data.
From here you can adjust the way a chart displays your data and values. Options here vary as each chart type has a different way of visualizing data.
Every chart type comes with predefined colors for the default data set. Choose a custom color for data categories and other chart features using the color picker or by typing in a hex code.
