How do I use a font for your symbol

  • Pick a single text string as your symbol

  • Use text from a column as symbols

To use a text string as your symbol:

1. Open the Graph Properties dialog box to the Symbols panel.

2. Click the Type drop down, and select the "Text" option.

3. Type the text character(s) you want to use for the symbol as prompted.

4. If you want to use one of the many symbol fonts as a symbol, use the Windows character map to select a symbol character, then paste the character in the Text Symbol dialog box, and change the font to the desired Symbol font (see below).

Changing the symbol font or text

Unfortunately, it isn’t obvious how to change the font for a symbol. To set the font or to change the text, right click the Type control in the Symbols panel, and choose to change the Symbol text or font.

This feature is particularly useful if you want to use Greek letters or symbol fonts like Wingdings as your symbols.

Using text from a worksheet column as your symbols

1. Type the text you want to use as your symbol in a worksheet column.

2. Open the Graph Properties dialog to the Symbols panel, and select that column as your symbols source.

3. Your symbols are now set to the text from the column.
