It's possible to define fonts, colors, spacing, gridlines, color scheme, tick marks and axis lines when designing CoporateCharts. These will be elaborated below.
In the following the name of different elements in a typical chart is marked:
Fonts, colors, and gridlines
We strongly advise that you only use Microsoft Office standard fonts.
Define the following (if part of your design):
- Type (bold, italic, underline)
- Color (RGB code)
- Gridlines (type, pt.)
Define Colors of the data series - For best practice, we recommend a minimum of eight colors and maximum 16.
Please define your colors in RGB codes. For multiple color schemes make sure to specify names of color schemes and which one is the company default.
Tick marks and axis lines
Define tick marks and axis lines
- Line type (solid, dash etc.)
- Width (define in pt)
- Colour (define in RGB)
- Tick marks (minor, major), (inside, outside, cross)
Spacing in bar and column charts
Define gap width and series overlap in bar and column charts with percentages.
For some types of charts, you will need to define the spacing of data entries
Spacing in doughnut charts
For some types of charts, you will need to define the spacing of data entries.
- Doughnut Hole Size
- Doughnut Explosion (space between slices)
Data series in line charts
- Line type
- Line width
- Cap type (end shape of the line)
