For those of you who’ve ever been disappointed by InDesign’s lack of charting features, I’ve got a solution in this week’s InDesign Secrets episode. The Chartwell font (yes, font!) from TK type makes ingenious use of ligatures in order to turn simple text numbers into bars, lines, and pies.
I’ll show you how to start by typing the mathematical equation that represents your chart numbers. You’ll turn off InDesign’s ligatures at first, then you simply apply variations on the Chartwell font and turn those numbers into corresponding charts when you turn ligatures back on.
