Alternative to Excel for charts
Posted 02 October 2010 - 03:52 AM
I am about to start writing the Results section of my PhD and I have like a hundred data plots that I would need to insert.
My data is in MS Excel (2007), but I feel the default charts in Excel are as someone said "what were they smoking when they made them??" ugly. So I either learn to batch format my plots in Excel (any ideas?) or find an application that has a bit more versatility. So my question is what do you use in these circumstances?
I use Windows XP or Ubuntu, so anything compatible with either would be perfect.
Thanks for the suggestions.

If you use Excel graphs, I won't use default ones, but change them in a way that they look at least almost professional.

You can format the graphs in Excel to make them look more professional if you can't find another software package.

BioMiha - why macros? Format one graph and copy it, then just change the source data for the copies, formatting would stay the same.
