Hi,

What is the way of changing chart defaults (other than making new templates), especially the chart size, 'legend' font size, 'axis items' and 'axis title' font size, 'chart title' font size?

The change can apply to all the chart types in excel.

Eg.

1. The legend size is set to 10 by default; I want it to be 11.

2. The chart size is about 7 X 12 cm. I want to change it to about 9 X 9 cm.


I'm using Excel 2010.

Thanks.

Hello and welcome to the forums.

Without chart templates, i assume that the only way to do this is to us VBA.
