Learn PowerPoint 2010: Changing Fill and Border of Charts

Created: Wednesday, October 12, 2011, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 4:00 am



Although the default fill and border (outline) that PowerPoint 2010 applies to charts may be perfectly adequate, you might want to play with Chart Styles found in the Chart Tools Design tab of the Ribbon — all these Styles are based on the Office Theme you apply to your active presentation. While this works great most of the time, there will be occasions when you may want to use a color for any of your data series that’s not part of the Theme palette in your presentation. In times like these, you can control the fill and border of chart elements using the techniques explained on this page.

Learn how you can change the fill and the border of selected data series in a chart within PowerPoint 2010.
