Like a regular text, the comment boxes can be formatted. Excel provides many formatting options and allows you to customize most aspects of its appearance, including color, border, and margins.
Span chart, also known as a range bar graph (range column graph),
floating bar graph, difference graph, high-low graph, used

When you create a shape in your spreadsheet, it is created with the default style and any text that

A flowchart or flow chart usually shows steps of the task, process, or workflow. There are many different
SmartArt templates predefined in MS Excel that you can use to illustrate the process, including visually

However, if you want to use different shapes and a complex topology, it is better to create your own
Most process flow diagrams and workflow charts use elbow connectors for connecting process stages and
elements, but too many connecting lines of the same type give your chart a messy look. Fortunately, you can

commercial diagram drawing packages, Microsoft Office shapes provide extremely rich text formatting
Business process charts like employee routines, document preparation, and approval, or online user navigation
path on a website or a Web store are different from academic flows of algorithms. Usually, academic
