    Nudge Charts with Keyboard (Excel 97)

    How do you nudge Charts using the keyboard?

    I can get Charts to move by direction of the arrow keys occasionally - but I never seem to be able to recreated the exact incantation / chant / weather conditions neccesary to be able to use this very neccesary feature first time ever time

    Help Please!!!

    Press F5 (goto), click Special, select Objects, OK.

    Now press the TAB key untill your chart is selected.

    Now you can nudge...

    Note that to align any object to the cell grid, one can alt-drag the object.

    OK,

    Figured it out.

    From the Drawing menu use select Objects (White pointer icon) then slect the chart(s) then you can use the mouse to nudge to your hearts content>

    Very useful for laptop users
