With the new charting engine you can highlight one of the series by hovering your mouse above its label, or click on the label to hide the series.
The new interactive charts in version 9 allow your visitors to use the mouse to tailor the chart to their needs. They can focus on a certain data series or completely hide one or more data series.
The interactive charts allow you to highlight one of the series just by hovering your mouse above its label.
In the screenshot below, we just held the mouse pointer above the Revenue series’ label. As you can see, the other three series faded out to let you focus on the highlighted series.
If you find some of the series distracting, just click once on the series labels and the series will be hidden. In the chart below, we simple clicked on the Industry average revenue and Industry Average Profit labels to hide them. Click on each label again to make the series visible.
If you want to try this for yourself, create a Combo chart in Excel. In Excel 2016, it is at the bottom of the All charts tab.
You can also download our example spreadsheet just to see how charts can look in converted web pages.
