Chart Border that won't go away

Recommended Posts

I have basic chart that has a ugly black line around the border of the chart when any area of the chart is selected. I have go through all of the appearance pulldowns of hover, selected, focus, etc and none of the have black border. The chart itself also does not have a black border. The border only appears when some clicks on the area were the chart is. Selecting it does nothing, but the area that it covers is quite large...not sure how to adjust that. Any ideas on how to get rid of this border? ThanksScreen Shot 2016-09-12 at 4.17.38 PM.jpg

The chart is in a tab so it is a little more complicated than that. I get the black line regardless of where the chart is placed though. Is this normal behavior for a chart?

What difference does that make?

I see it too, so I guess the answer is yes.

Strange behavior. I just made the chart into a button to commit the record and that seems to resolve it.

That will work too - if you don't might the chart being highlighted when clicked. Though I would pick an action that's guaranteed to be benign, e.g. Beep.

You can control a chart's borders with Styles.   Select the chart then select the 'normal' popup on the Appearance tab.  Switch it to 'in focus'.  Set the border to none.  Depending upon the Theme, you may also have to uncheck 'Outer Shadow'.

On removing the highlight action of a button, copy the 'normal' state to the 'pressed' and 'in focus' and even 'hover'.  Do so by copying the state's Style (that is the up arrow just to the right of 'normal').  Select it.  Then switch from 'normal' to 'in focus' and select the down arrow which now pastes the other style.  Repeat with all the states for that style and it will no longer respond to a button press or hover.

ps if using Classic theme left over from an older file, you may not be able do this unless you switch from Classic to another theme but in general this works just fine.  

Also remember to save the modified style to the Theme which will have turned its arrow red.

Hi LaRetta

Although all appearance occurrences had the line set to off, your mention of Classic theme made me wonder if it was related to the theme. And it was, if I switch the theme out of Classic the chart no longer highlights with all of the same settings (copy/paste). Thanks so much for you help.

Yes, and even with the lines all set to off, you can STILL get the border when you select the chart EVEN if using a styled theme instead of classic.  Take the default theme of Enlightened for example ... create a chart, set line to none on all the states of the style and you will still get the border when selecting the chart.  One must also uncheck 'outer shadow' when 'in focus'.

BTW, your screenshot DID look like classic theme and I should have verified.
