With the "Five Bar Chart," you can build a bar chart with up to five bars directly in Storykit.
The bar chart adjusts in width to the number of values you define, up to five in total.
The slide also has a headline and description to let you explain what the chart is all about. So you can tell a pretty extensive story on the slide itself.
Usage and behavior
- The "Title" field holds 40 characters in the Large typography.
- The "Subtitle" field holds 85 characters in the Small typography.
You access the value and label fields under the "Chart Values" part in the right-hand pane.
- The "Label" field for each bar holds 20 characters. The labels will adjust their size to the most extended label of all five. It can be beneficial to do line breaks in the label if you need to, to create shorter lines, and increasing the size of the text.
- The "Value" field is a number input field for the actual value of the bar.
If you want to append a percentage sign after the value on the chart, then check the "Percent Sign" box. This is not a re-calculation function since bar charts display actual values.
The chart will automatically calculate the index numbers and chart lines needed base on the input of the "Value" fields. You can control the appearance of these values and chart lines under "Styling Settings."
- Bar Values: This checkbox toggles the visibility of the values at the bar.
- X-axis Baseline: This checkbox toggles the visibility of the "zero" baseline in the bar chart.
- Chart Lines: This checkbox toggles the visibility of the horizontal value lines that help guide the reading of the chart.
- Dashed Chart Lines: Check this box if you want the chart lines to be dashed instead of solid.
- Y-axis Value: This checkbox toggles the visibility of the values at the left edge of the bar chart. These values are automatically calculated to the same standard as in Microsoft Excel.
All colors can be edited under "Color." All bars default to the Primary theme color.
