Native charts

Native charts define how to create graphical visualizations from numerical data within your text editor. The format defines:

  • the dataset to be used for the visual display and

  • several different types of graphical displays

    • such as line charts, pie charts, etc.

The following 2 docs contain examples how to create a pie chart within an ODT document and a line chart within a DOCX/PDF document, respectively:

Compatibility

  • βœ… supported file formats: DOCX, ODT, PDF. DOCX/ODT templates can generate DOCX/ODT/PDF documents

  • βœ… create charts only from your text editor (Microsoft Word or LibreOffice); insert the data series in the XLSX/ODS sheet provided by your text editor

    • ❌ charts cannot be copy-pasted from an external XLSX/ODS file

    • ❌ external spreadsheets cannot be linked as dynamic series of data

  • ❗in LibreOffice, the {bindChart()} tag is required

  • ❗ chart styling (titles, colors, captions, etc.) can only be defined within the text editor
