Chart Formatting

Occasional Visitor

Every time I close my powerpoint my chart reverts back to horrible formatting. I don't want to change it every time I open it. How do I keep the format from changing?


Also I tried paste special and it pastes as the horrible formatting. Help!

Is the chart tied to Excel data with automatic updates or is it a chart that you created in PPT? 


If it is linked to Excel and you enabled automatic updates, you may be able to apply the same formatting/theme to the Excel file and the PPT.  That may fix the issue.
