    Perpendicular Lines (ms word 2007)


    how do i get my charts to be "square" so that graphs look the way the should.

    for example, if i make a graph, the perpendicular lines do not look like they intersect at a 90 degree angle. i assume the reason has to do with the fact that the default grids are not perfect squares.

    so even if i make both of my x and y axis from -10 to 10, my graphs still dont look right.

    any ideas?

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    You have posted your question in the Word forum. Are you using Word to create your charts, and if so, how?

    If you are using Word and an AutoShape like a line or arrow to create your x- and y-axis but your hand on the mouse moves slightly to not have the lines be perpendicular, try holding down the shift key while you draw the line(s). The lines will be "straight". Also, using the shift key when drawing an oval or rectangle or triangle will insure that the object is a circle and not oval, a square vs a rectangle or an equilateral triangle. Hope this helps.
