Dear Experts:

for the selected charts on the active worksheet I would like to run the following VBA macro:

- Resize the charts to Width of 5 cm and Height of 9 cm
- Increase the size of the chart labels (all of them are pie charts) to 10 pt and font type 'Times New Roman'

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

Hi Rgonzo,

thank you very much for your swift help. I will give your code a try soon, but as I can see all of the charts get worked on on the active worksheet.

I got charts on the active worksheet that should be left alone and only those charts that I selected by using the Shift-Key and clicking on them should be worked on. Is this possible, i.e. running the above macro just on selected charts ...

It is without test whether you select Charts or anything
