Customizing Your Bubbles

Gradients: You can add a gradient to your bubbles to get a more “3D” effect by checking the [Display as 3D Bubbles] checkbox in the Bubble Chart Preference form under the “Axis and Bubble Display” tab.

Drop Shadows: You can also add drop shadows to your bubbles to get a more “3D” effect by checking the [Display Drop Shadows] checkbox in the Bubble Chart Preference form under the “Axis and Bubble Display” tab.

Transparency: You can make to your bubbles transparent by reducing the opacity in the Bubble Chart Preference form using the [% Opacity] slider or field. Note: When using transparency, best results are obtained with drop shadows off and light backgrounds.

Names: You can also add name labels to your bubbles by checking the [Display Bubble Names] checkbox in the “Preferences form” under the “Bubbles” tab.

Numbers to Bubbles and Legends: When you have many bubbles with similar or the same color, it can be useful to use numbers to identify the bubble. Checking the [Display Bubble Numbers] checkbox in the Bubble Chart Preference form under the “Axis and Bubble Display” tab will add a number to the center of each bubble and to the corresponding legend item.

Blinking: You can make selected bubbles “blink” on and off in bubble charts by checking the “Blink on Charts” checkbox in the project form.
