Making a chart look three dimensional
A chart that uses the default formats appears as a two-dimensional chart. You can make a chart appear three dimensional by selecting 2D With Depth in Dimension, as shown in Figure 8-68. For bar, line, and area charts, you can also create three-dimensional charts, by selecting the 3D setting. If you choose the 3D option for a chart, you cannot flip the axes of the chart.
Figure 8-69 shows a bar chart that uses the 2D With Depth setting. Not all chart types support the 2D With Depth setting. For example, this setting is not available for meter charts or line charts.
