Created: Monday, December 24, 2012, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 3:30 am



When you add new charts in PowerPoint, the default fill and border (line) that PowerPoint 2011 applies to chart elements are perfectly adequate. Still, you might want to play with the Chart Styles available — all these Styles are based on the Office Theme you have applied to the active presentation, and 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 to change the fill and the border of selected chart elements within PowerPoint 2011.
