The User Settings are accessed via the More Button in the empower® charts menu.
This ribbon group can be found on the Insert Ribbon tab and on the Start or empower® tab.
This section allows a user to configure their installation of empower® charts.
If the corporate design administrator has provided more than one Customizing, you can set a Default Customizing from the dropdown menu (1).
In the dropdown menu of Live Update Mode, you can set whether the data displayed by an empower chart should update automatically, not at all, or if you prefer to receive an update notification if the underlying data of the chart has changed (2).
The third dropdown menu allows you to choose if Points or Series should be selected first (3).
The fourth dropdown menu allows you to set the default region format for your Gantt chart (4).
More information can be found in Chapter 4 Gantt chart.
Lastly, you can check the box to either Improve Excel performance or Enable Co-Authoring support (5). These settings should always be activated unless they cause any performance issues.
Please note that more memory storage is used when Improve Excel performance is activated because two instead of one Excel® processes run in the background. Thus, both performance and stability is improved when working with Excel® windows within empower® charts to edit a chart. Above all, it leads to a faster entry of data.
When Enable Co-Authoring support is activated, multiple users can simultaneously work together on a presentation that contains empower® charts. Working simultaneously together on the same chart may lead to conflicts. empower® charts supports helps solving these conflicts.
