Formatting Panels

The formatting panel is a context sensitive panel from which you can set formatting preferences for your visualization. This includes the visualization colors, plotting area, slicers, legends, axes, titles, and more.

The formatting panel (blue highlight) is designed to be used in conjunction with the formatting selection tool (red highlight), which, when enabled, transforms the canvas into an intuitive, point and click formatting apparatus.

To activate the formatting panel

  1. Click on the formatting selection tool
  2. Click on the area of the visualization that you want to format
  3. Select formatting options


Hovering over any of the components on the canvas will highlight them; clicking a component will expose its formatting options in the formatting panel.
