Creating charts can be both easy and difficult — it all depends upon what you want to end up with! The easiest way is to just accept all the defaults that PowerPoint provides. The difficult way is to fine tune each aspect of the chart until you have just what you wanted. Between the easy and difficult ways is another option, the clever way. This lets you quickly create a better, cooler chart with these tricks that we share on this page. Do note that this list of tricks is not something you will process in a step-by-step way. And it is not necessary that every trick will apply to all charts you create.
