Video: Working with 3D charts

Pie charts are an effective way to show relative percentages of a whole. In this case, this chart represents the distribution of sales across various regions of the world. Let's look at some of the options we have with pie charts. I am going to select the chart, go up to my Inspector, make sure my Chart Inspector is open and look at this Labels checkbox. I can turn-off the Labels, all those percentages, usually I want them on a pie chart and I can change the role of position of them, of course to the center. It's a nice handy slider to have. Another thing I can do is I can explode out these wedges if I want to as a whole, grab this slider and pull, if you want a certain part of your chart to be at a certain location of the circle. Let me demonstrate that with this rotation angle, and I can turn this and you can change how you want that information displayed, sometimes you might want something large at the top, sometimes just really depends on your presentation but notice the labels stay relatively horizontal which is a nice feature.

Working with 3D charts

Pie charts are an effective way to show relative percentages of a whole. In this case, this chart represents the distribution of sales across various regions of the world. Let's look at some of the options we have with pie charts. I am going to select the chart, go up to my Inspector, make sure my Chart Inspector is open and look at this Labels checkbox. I can turn-off the Labels, all those percentages, usually I want them on a pie chart and I can change the role of position of them, of course to the center. It's a nice handy slider to have. Another thing I can do is I can explode out these wedges if I want to as a whole, grab this slider and pull, if you want a certain part of your chart to be at a certain location of the circle. Let me demonstrate that with this rotation angle, and I can turn this and you can change how you want that information displayed, sometimes you might want something large at the top, sometimes just really depends on your presentation but notice the labels stay relatively horizontal which is a nice feature.

I can also in a pie chart, and this is commonly used and pretty handy, isolate out a separate wedge. I'll go in here and click, let's say I want to emphasize that we are talking about the US and Canadian sales. You can see here from the wedge that this is the right color for that. If I click-and-hold, you can see that particular wedge got selected and I just can drag it out a bit. This gives it a bit more emphasis. That can be very helpful sometimes. Now let me take this 2D chart and convert it to a 3D chart. So I clicked off of it and I'll select the whole chart. Go in here in my Chart Inspector and pull down the charts Type Selector and choose a 3D version of the pie chart. And you can see it dropped in a 3D version and I got this floating window that gives me a rotation capability. Let me show you how that works.

If I click and hold on this vertical axis, see how it's limiting my movement just to the vertical. If I click on the edge of this horizontal, you can see it limits my movement to horizontal. If I click in the center, now I have full 3D rotation capabilities. So you can angle your chart to make it look just exactly the way you want it. Some of the other things you can control are the lighting style, the depth of the chart, you can pull here with the slider to make it thicker or thinner and the Bevel Edges, I currently have on, I like them on, I'll shut them off, you can see that with them on, you would get a slightly more defined look to the edges of the chart, really helps you understand the data a bit better.

Let me rotate this down and again, just a little bit, just to get it looking just right. Now, I might in this case want to change how my legend looks. Now if you recall the legend is a part of the chart that gets generated when the chart gets generated and let's I want this to have the letter spacing between each of these units be bigger. I want some breathing room for these separate pieces of data so I can read them easier. If I go up to the Text Inspector and click on the Text bar, I actually don't have that control with the legend that come for the chart. I don't have as much text control. So there is nothing stopping me from creating my own legend for my own text object. In fact, on Slide 2, I have taken a liberty of already starting that. So I clicked on Slide 2 now.

Now I have typed in these five different bullet points but now this is a body text object instead of the legend and so with this object selected, I can now have more manipulation about this depth like Before Paragraph. I can dial in exactly how much space I want between each one and I have more control over the bullets. Let me click on the Bullets tab and I can change the size of these bullets to make them a little more meaningful. Let me double-click on that 100 and type in 250 and hit Enter. You can see it change the relative size of that bullet point and that makes it standout, it makes it a lot more legible.

This Align feature, let's me set exactly how I want that bullet point to line with the text itself and you can see here, the last two, I haven't change the color because I wanted to show you how you can change the color of a bullet really easily. Let me double-click and make sure I have that Main European Markets line selected. In fact, I can just click in anywhere on that line. So with my cursor in this bullet point for Main European Markets, let me change the color of that bullet point, up here in the Text Inspector. I can click in the well associated with the color of the bullet.

And with the Color Wheel selected in the Colors palette, I'll click on this Color Selector Magnifying Glass, bring it over here and click in that particular part of the graph. Basically, I was taking a reading of what pixel was underneath that magnifying glass at that time and that changed the color of that bullet. So I can match up the color of the bullet to the part of the chart that I want to. So for instance, I'll click in here, Rest of the World, and notice the Color Well is already selected, so I'm good to go with that. Click on the Magnifying Glass and I'll go over to this part of the chart, click in and now I have a nice color relationship and I have full control over the size of the bullets and the placement of this text.

So not only do you have Keynotes built- in Chart features available to you, but you can take advantage of Keynote's flexible Design tool to get your slide looking just the way you want it.
