Showing Data Point Symbols in Area Charts

In area charts, you can use symbols (circles, triangles, squares, and diamonds) to
represent data points.

You can use the format bar to quickly customize symbols. Select a symbol and use the
Symbol and Size controls to format symbols. You can also use the Chart inspector.

To show data point symbols using the Chart inspector:


Select a data series (area shape), click Inspector in the toolbar, click the Chart inspector

button, and then click Series.


Choose a symbol from the Data Symbol pop-up menu.


Adjust the size of the data point symbols by entering a value or using the stepper in

the adjacent field.

To learn about other formatting options, see “Formatting Charts” on page 143.
