    • Select the chart by mouse click. The Action menu icon appears.
    • Click on the icon to open Action menu.
    • To change point number use Action menu commands Add point, Remove point, Set number of points.
  • To set maximum value for vertical axis use Action menu command Set max value.
  • To change orientation of point labels use Action menu command Values vertical/horizontal.
  • To hide or show point values use Action menu command Hide/Show values.
  • To hide or show axises use Action menu command Hide/Show axis.
  • To hide or show edges in the line graph use Action menu command Hide/Show edges. Line graph object with action menu
  • To change value select the chart, then select point and type new value.
  • To add or change chart caption select the chart and simply start typing. Line graph object selection
  • To change orientation of category labels under horizontal axis use Action menu command Inclined/Horizontal labels.
  • To move category labels up and down select the chart and use control dot in the bottom right corner of the shape.
  • To change space between points select the chart and use control dot on the horizontal axis.

Data Flow Diagram →

There are many ways to define the flow of information within a system. Structured-systems analysis method often uses data flow diagrams to show data flow, data storages and data processing visualization. These diagrams are easy to develop and quite useful. Here is a dataflow diagram presenting an example of the manufacturing process flow. The oval process shapes represent a process that controls data within the current system. The process may produce data or make some action based on data. Data flows are represented by lines. They show the movement of information through the system. The direction of the data flow is depicted by the arrow. The external entities are shown by rectangles. They represent the external entities interacting with the system. The data store objects (unclosed rectangles) are used to show data bases participating in a process flow.Data Flow Diagram *

Emergency Plan →

Unfortunately, a man can’t predict the future and no one is safe from natural disasters, such as floods, earthquakes, hurricanes or fires. Nonetheless, what you can do to ensure safety for you and your relatives is to create an emergency plan, so everyone will know what to do if emergency happens. Keep that plan simple and train it several times a year so that no one could forget any details of it. Fire and emergency plans are important to supply people with a visual safety solution. This diagram presents a set of standard symbols used to depict fire safety, emergency, and associated information. Using clear and standard symbols on fire emergency plans provides the coherence of collective actions , helps to avoid embarrassment, and improves communications in an emergent situation. The fire emergency symbols are intended for the general emergency and fire service, as well as for building plans ,engineering drawings and insurance diagrams. They can be used during fire extinguishing and evacuation operations, as well as trainings. It includes vector symbols for emergency management mapping, emergency evacuation diagrams and plans.Emergency Plan
