Color Scheme

The Color Scheme determines the background and bevel colors.

Background Color

The chart background can be chosen from one of six gradient colors (brown, green, red, silver, blue, and yellow) or from a list of 140 solid colors. If a gradient scheme is chosen, the listing of solid colors is deactivated. To activate the solid color list, select Solid Color from the combo box, then scroll and click on the desired background color.

Use Monochrome (No Colors)

If checked, all chart colors will be changed to gray shades.

Hide All Frames

Frames are rectangles marking the borders of the five chart regions. The five chart regions are the Heading, Title, Footer, Legend, and Graph. The Legend and Graph regions also have an Accent Frame located inside the border frame. Chart tables have a border frame and accent frame. If this checkbox is marked, the control settings from the six border frames and three accent frames are ignored. If this checkbox is unmarked, then the settings from the other controls are used when the chart is created.

Gradient Fill Direction

If one of the six gradient colors (brown, green, red, silver, blue, and yellow) is selected as the chart background color, the light to dark color change (Fill Direction) can be set in horizontal, vertical, or diagonal directions.

Bevel Width

The Outside and Inside Bevels form the outermost edge of the WISCO Survey charts. When a gradient color scheme is used, the outside and inside bevels can be displayed to show a raised or lowered appearance. The bevel width can be varied between 0 and 9 pixels.

Margin Width

The Margin width refers to the amount of space between the bevel and the five chart regions (Header, Title, Footer, Legend, and Graph). The margin width can be varied between 0 and 9 pixels.

JPG Quality

JPG file size can be reduced by compressing the image. which results in some of the image information being lost. As JPG image compression is increased (thereby reducing the file size), gradients, text, lines, and sharp images become increasingly blurred. JPGs can handle color depth much better than the very limited GIF format. JPG images are best suited for photographs. JPG Quality can be varied from 50 to 100%. No reduction in file size occurs with a JPG Quality setting of 100%.

Data from Single Series, Multiple Series, and Cross-Tabulation charts require slight differences when they are displayed. Most chart features are identical. Some settings only apply to one chart type.

You can make custom settings on the four tabbed pages (Background, Header Title & Footer, Legend & Graph, and Data Display). You will also be able to modify the displayed charts before you copy, save, or print your final charts.

Chart Type

WISCO Survey supports 15 chart varieties. If the chart data is from a single series of data points, area, column, horizontal bar, line, pie, point charts, and data table can be displayed. If the chart data is from a multiple series of data points, 15 different chart types, and data table can be displayed. Semantic differential chart can also be displayed for semantic differential question types. The 14 chart types available for multiple series data are Area, Stacked Area, Stacked Area 100%, Column, Stacked Column, Stacked Column 100%, Horizontal Bar, Stacked Horizontal Bar, Stacked Horizontal Bar 100%, Line, Stacked Line, Stacked Line 100%, Pie, and Point. Tables can also be displayed.
