How to format chart using .NET | Data label | Axis | Legends colors

Setting up a chart in Word is lacking a number of key features including:

  • Configuring chart axis (min / max / tick interval / etc)
  • Setting series colors
  • Reversing plot order
  • Data label formatting (custom labels / font sizes / etc)
  • Other formatting items

Ideally the same control over charts in Cells and Slides should be available in Words and until they are it’s not possible for us to use Aspose.

There are a number of other posts on this already (see Change rendering of Axis labels and Aspose.Word Charts title for X and Y axis- set color for legends- Line for y axis and removing background lines and others) but wanted to add my thoughts.
