    Another work around for this is to save the file to .html format. The chart will be saved separate from the sheet as a .png file.

    Thanks,

    I’m not sure I understand. I read through the article which speaks to the need for showing discrete data in the form of scatterplots, box plots, and histograms instead of bar and line graphs. We have always supported scatter charts in Excel and have recently added box plot and histogram in Excel 2016. Could you further clarify your request?

    Thanks,
    Scott [MSFT]

    Given your scenario, it seems like a box plot (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Box_plot) with the data points turned on would serve your needs. However, let me know if I'm missing something.

    In Excel 2016, we now natively support box plots and you can turn on the data points.

    Thanks,

    Thank you for taking the time to share your suggestion to create PowerPoint slides directly from an Excel Sheet!

    This this suggestion does has merit; however, we don’t expect to devote time to it in the near future. We will continue tracking votes and comments here, and will keep this suggestion under consideration for future development.

    Thank you again,
    Auston [MSFT]

    We have not been able to repro your issue. Would you be able to provide us more details on the version of Excel you are using and a sample file? We can follow-up via email on this.

    Thanks,
    Scott [MSFT]

    Saskia,

    I tried sending email to the address that you provided the User Voice site, however, it bounced back. An alternate approach is you can send your bug and file to Office Support site at http://support.office.com or the Microsoft Community at http://answers.microsoft.com to report support-related issues.

    Thanks,
    Scott [MSFT]

    We are looking at several ways to make formatting easier. This is an interesting approach that we will consider.

    Thanks,

    Scott Sobel - could you create a separate feature idea that covers your "Format Painter" idea? This is different from the original "UI Overhaul" post and I want to make sure people have the opportunity to vote on both.

    Thanks,

    When you say the “chart continuously resizes” are you referring to the chart’s value axis scale? The physical boundary of the chart should not resize when the data is added. When a chart is inserted, the default size is 3″×5″ which doesn’t automatically change but the user can manually change it through the Format ribbon or resizing the chart via its drag handles.

    Thanks,
    Scott [MSFT]

    Brett,

    Thanks for the great example. As you have illustrated, series can be used for a wide variety of very creative uses. In some cases they are used for filling a functional gap in the product. If you had the ability to graph and equation; e.g. x^2 + y^2 = 1 would that address your needs? Essentially, the equation graph would be supported as a real feature.

    Thanks,
    Scott
