Line charts are my favourite. So simple and uncomplicated.
However, the standard line chart formatting in PowerPoint needs help. Charts often look too jagged and give your slide a dated look.
A quick fix is hidden in the formatting section to make your line chart look smooth and modern 👇
- Click on the graph and select the series (i.e. line) you want to format
- Right-click and select “Format Data Series” to open the format menu
- On the Fill & Line section (the paint bucket icon), scroll to the bottom and select the “Smoothed line” option
It’s as simple as that. Now you can add that modern look and feel to all your line charts. This same technique can be followed in Excel too.
