šŸ“– < 1 min read
Google is adding new features to help you customize chart text and numbers in Google Sheets. Specifically, you can now:
  • Directly click on almost any chart text element and update both its content and style, most notably individual data labels and legend items.
  • Set advanced number formatting options on both your data labels and axis labels, including the option to conditionally format by color.
  • Use a contextual sidebar editing experience, making it easier to format individual data labels, legend items, and single data points.
See images below for demonstrations:
