Changing the background fill


Changing the background fill

You can add a pattern or gradient fill to the chart background. A pattern fill consists of two colors arranged to form a design. A gradient fill creates a smooth transition between two colors by gradually changing their transparency as the fill progresses from one color to another.

You can also apply a texture or picture fill to a chart background. Quattro Pro provides a selection of texture and picture fills that you can use.

You can modify the gradient fill and picture fill settings. For example, you can choose from three different gradient types, linear, circular, or rectangular, where each gradient type creates a unique transition between the two colors.
