Google Drive Blog: Edit charts in Google spreadsheets with just a click

Google Drive Blog: Edit charts in Google spreadsheets with just a click | Using Google Drive in the classroom | Scoop.it

Charts tell the story of our data, so we often spend a lot of time getting the formatting just right. That’s why we wanted to make that process quicker and easier in Google spreadsheets. Instead of opening the chart editor dialog to make formatting changes, you can now click directly on the part of the chart you want to modify to change things like the colors, legend, and labels.

Gerald Carey's insight:
This is a handy feature if you like to add charts or graphs into Google Docs.  You now add a link which will update the chart or graph when it is updated in Sheets (or not, depending on what option you pick). Always a tricky thing to do up until now, we use it frequently in Science reports and in adding Statistics graphs to assignments.
