Finding hidden treasures in OpenOffice 2.0's Charting Wizard

Filed under
Software

I loved Nancy Drew mysteries. Somehow, Nancy always had a hunch about where to look, in the old clock or the mysterious ballet dancer's closet, to find the jewels, the glowing eye or the kidnapped heiress.

Nancy would have been great at doing charts in OpenOffice 2.0.

The chart features in OpenOffice are like a mystery-lover's dream vacation: a huge, mysterious old house with lots of long halls, secret bookcases, dark closets and creaky doors that, when you peer behind them, reveal wonderful secrets.

Now, I realize that all this mystery can be annoying if you don't have three months of summer to explore the charting features and you just want your darn scatterplot out in a few minutes. Fortunately, even though much of the power of OpenOffice charts is hidden, once you know it's available and where to find it, you can get to it much more easily.

So, here's your tour of the powerful, hidden charting jewels in OpenOffice 2.0.

Full Story.
