26.1.4 The 2D Graphs Toolbar

2D Graphs bar.png

The 2D Graphs toolbar buttons are available when a worksheet, Excel workbook, or graph window is active. Buttons provide quick access to common 2D graph templates. Related plot types are grouped and can be accessed from a popup menu when the button Button Expand FO Edit Box.png to the right of the toolbar button is clicked. The last button, Button Template Library.png, opens the Template Library, providing access to custom graph templates.

To use the 2D Graphs toolbar buttons:

  • When a worksheet or Excel workbook is active, highlight the data to be plotted, and click the appropriate button on the 2D Graphs toolbar to create a graph.
  • When a graph window is active, the graph type can be changed (for example, from a scatter plot to a column plot) for the active data plot.
