    In Excell 2003 there were patterns for Fill in charts and other things. Patterns like cross hatching and diagonal lines. I do not see these in 2007. Am I just not looking in the right place?


    Thanks

    They were removed in 2007. Andy Pope has an add-in that will allow you to recreate them though. It's here.

    Sometimes quite useful if you haven't got a Colour Printer, and want a clearer distinction than shades of grey.
