Charley's Swipe File #1(Many of my swipe files use Greeking, which is fake Latin. It helps you ignore the textual content and focus on the actual charts and tables.)

This figure includes several blocks of text you can use as titles, explanations, qualifications, data sources, and so on.

The gridlines provide the visual guide that many readers prefer. But because they’re light gray, they don’t distract from the plot line.

All the text is linked to cells in the simplified FDS (Figure Data Support) worksheets. You can enter formulas in those cells to return new text from tables or other sources.
