Horizontal Axis (Style)

You can format the horizontal axis of a chart.

The formatting options below deal with a Bar chart since this is one of the most common types of charts used, and most standard charts include an X-axis and Y-axis. Based on the type of chart you are using, the chart axis formatting options may differ.

To format the style of the horizontal axis (or X-axis), repeat Steps 1-3 above in Horizontal Axis (Title) to display the Axis Settings – Horizontal window.
