The ability to create full color charts and insert them anywhere within a financial statement is one of the most powerful tools available within the Financial Statement Editor. The simple yet flexible interface is easy to use and quickly produces the most commonly used charts customized to your preferences.

To insert a chart within the selected statement in the Financial Statement Editor, place your cursor in the row or cell in which you would like the chart to be placed and then choose Insert > Chart or Insert > Full Page Chart (for a chart that automatically fits on a single page).

To edit a pre-existing chart, highlight the cell in which the chart is located and then choose Edit > Chart.

You may view the types of charts that can be created in two different ways:

  1. Open the Insert Chart dialog, and highlight the different chart names in the list on the left side of the dialog. A preview of the chart type will appear in the pane on the right.
  2. A global statement has been created that contains examples of the different chart types. To open it,choose File > Open > Global Statement. In the Open Global Statement dialog, highlight ChartSample.fsr and click Open. A different chart appears on each sheet of the statement. To view the properties of each chart, highlight the chart and choose Edit > Chart.
