Change the chart text font

To change the text font for any chart element, such as a title or axis, right–click the element, and then click Font. When the Font box appears make the changes you want. Here’s an example—suppose you want to change the font size of the chart title.

 

or with VBA code

 

Sub testfont()
Dim myD As ChartObject
For Each myD In ActiveSheet.ChartObjects
    myD.Activate
    With Selection.Font
        .Name = "Arial"
        .Size = 12
    End With
Next
End Sub

 

 

Hope I was able to help you with this information.

Hi!

Thanks for your reply. But I don't want to change just one chart. I want to change the font of all my charts (around 200 charts) and I do not want to do it one by one.
I guess I may do it in the VBA??

Why doesn't it work with the previously sent VBA code?

It is for all diagrams in the active worksheet.

Anyway here is some additional code from Internet, untested.

 

Sub LoopThroughCharts()
'PURPOSE: Loop through every graph in the active workbook
'SOURCE: www.TheSpreadsheetGuru.com/The-Code-Vault
Dim sht As Worksheet
Dim CurrentSheet As Worksheet
Dim cht As ChartObject
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.EnableEvents = False
Set CurrentSheet = ActiveSheet
For Each sht In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
  For Each cht In sht.ChartObjects
    cht.Activate
    
    'Do something with the chart...
     
 With cht.Chart.ChartArea.Format.TextFrame2.TextRange.Font
    .Name = "Arial"
    .Size = 12
End With
  
  
  Next cht
Next sht
CurrentSheet.Activate
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub
