    Obviously grabbed from Barnes and Noble (I have a gift card from there).

    If you have an opinion on any of these, please let me know, I'd like to get a decent one. Maybe I'll go browse BAM (it's the only bookstore we have...)

    Guess most of us just muddled through using the apps and didn't resort to manuals.
    Good luck with your choice and avoid the dummies. I really hate their jokey condescension, to say nothing of their titles.

    Thanks for the heads up on the "Dummies" series. I had never heard good or bad about it.

    The chart legend is pretty limited. The labels are taken from the column headers. Other than that you can move it around a bit by draging it and its handles.

    The alternatve is to create your own using media and shapes. You can create various colored shapes with text in them, or just the text. A bit of a pain, but you would have much more controle over fonts, size, placement, etc.
