I've put an embedded chart on a sheet that I want to be visible all the time while working on the sheet. The problem is that when the chart is not selected, it "grays out" . This doesn't happen when I open a new book and put a chart on a page. Why is it doing it in my project, and how can I stop it? I can't find any settings for "visbility.

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

Hi hilyete

That happens when you have

Tools->Options->View->Objects->Show Placeholders

change to:

...->Show All
