  2. Using the resize handles, change the size of the chart to fit your specifications.
  3. Double-click the chart. An Edit Chart dialog will appear with dozens of customizable options and settings.
  4. Adjust the chart options to your preference, then click OK. Consult the Chart Types to learn more about what each setting does in each chart type.
