Part of series: TO018 Tool 018 – Scale Break 2
Series Keywords: scale break, full-chart scale breaks, horizontal scale break, vertical scale break
This is the second series for scale breaks. TO003 also provides a scale break that can be used on individual columns or bars. They are a little difficult to use effectively, however, when there is a patterned background on the slide. These scale breaks will work better in those instances. They are larger than the scale breaks in TO003 – they span the chart horizontally/vertically.
In the series example, the presenter wants to focus on the smaller columns, so the scale break is used to make them appear more distinctly and prominently on the slide.
The download contains 4 vertical sets and 4 horizontal sets of scale breaks. The vertical scale breaks are for bar charts and the horizontal scale breaks are for column charts. Also, 3 of the 4 sets are graphics that can receive fill and line colors; whereas 1 of the 4 sets is a line that can receive color and weight formatting. Refer to the tutorial for more information on usage and formatting.
