I want to apply a manual formatting to my charts that is not possible in think-cell.
In the PowerPoint ribbon, go to
- Apply your manual change, but make sure not to move shapes or change data.
To reactivate think-cell click the Activate button with the think-cell logo.
This is the only button left in the think-cell ribbon group when think-cell is deactivated.
In many cases, you will be able to seamlessly continue working with think-cell while your manual formatting is retained.
However, this cannot always be guaranteed because some subsequent edits in think-cell may recreate the features you edited,
which will reset them to the standard formatting.
It often is best to make such changes to the final chart.
Most think-cell charts consist of a Microsoft Graph object and various PowerPoint shapes.
Some charts are created from PowerPoint shapes alone.
Double-click the Graph object if you need to edit it.
This will most likely display a dialog window, asking
Do you want to convert this chart?
Click Edit Existing.
For a detailed explanation please see KB0084.
You can completely deactivate think-cell for a particular chart while keeping think-cell's benefits for other charts.
To achieve this, do move an element of the chart while think-cell is deactivated.
Reactivate think-cell as described above and click the chart.
Choose Continue editing without think-cell functionality
as described in our user manual at
Reimporting think-cell elements from PowerPoint.
