Increasing the size of the % when you are doing a chart

RE: Powerpoint

Hi Shane,

Thank you for your question about increasing the size of the % in charts. I assume you mean the actual size not the amount. What you need to do is:

1. Make sure your chart is not selected first
2. Click on one of the % values in the chart which will automatically select all of them
3. Either go to the HOME tab and increase the font size in the 'Font' section OR use the keyboard shortcut CTRL SHIFT >
4. To decrease the font choose CTRL SHIFT <

Hope that's what you're after. Please let me know if it is, then we can close the post as resolved.

Kind regards

PowerPoint tip:

Moving shapes where you want

when you move shapes using your cursor arrows they jump around, so by holding down the CTRL key and using the arrows the shape moves where you want it to.
