About graph layouts

Use a graph layout to organize multiple graphs from the same project on one page. For example, you might want to compare or contrast different graphs or perhaps emphasize a group of graphs for a report or presentation.

Create a graph layout

  1. Create the graphs you want to include in the layout.
  2. With a graph active, choose Editor > Layout Tool.
    The active graph is copied to the first cell in the layout.
  3. In Rows, enter the number of rows for the layout.
  4. In Columns, enter the number of columns for the layout.
  5. To copy graphs to the layout, click the cell where you want to copy the graph and do one of the following:
    • In the list box, double-click a graph name.
    • In the list box, click a graph name and then click the right arrow button .
    • Double-click the image of the selected item below the list box.
  6. Click Finish.

The graph region color of the first graph you add determines the graph region color for the entire layout.

Edit a graph layout

After you create a layout, you can edit individual graphs and graph groupings.


If the worksheet data changes after you create a layout, you cannot update the graphs in the layout to display the changes. You must re-create the layout with updated copies of the graphs.

  • To copy graphs to or remove graphs from the layout, with the layout active, choose Editor > Layout Tool and use the arrow buttons to copy or remove graphs.
  • To move a graph within a layout, with the layout active, choose Editor > Layout Tool and drag the graph to the new location.
