Changing Three-Dimensional Viewing Angles

The simplest way to change the viewing angle of a three-dimensional chart is to select one of the chart's corners and drag it with the mouse. While you're dragging, Excel displays an outline of the chart. (If you want to see an outline that includes the data markers, hold down Ctrl while you drag.) This direct-manipulation approach is simple, but you also can easily turn an intelligible chart into something quite the opposite. If you change your mind, click Undo.

For more precise viewing-angle adjustment, choose Chart, 3-D View. The 3-D View dialog box, shown in Figure 25-39, provides separate controls for modifying your chart's elevation, rotation, perspective, and height.
