      Hi Felix,

      Can you provide more info (by adding a comment or updating the idea on the user voice web site)?

      Links to the various forums, and a bit more description of what you’re seeing would be awesome.

      Thanks,
      Dan [MS]

        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,

                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,

                  Dave,

                  Just to be clear, are you drawing a line from the corners of the plot area; i.e. top of x axis to far right of y axis, or are you drawing a line from the corners of the entire chart area?

                  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.

                        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]

                            Thanks for your suggestion. Can you provide a couple of examples please? We want to be sure we understand exactly what you’re suggesting.

                            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
