Convert Charts to InDesign Objects
The "Convert Charts to Objects" function makes it easy to convert the live object format that Cacidi Charts uses for drawing the charts to InDesign objects for safe distributing or creative manipulation of elements.
If Charts are selected, only the selected objects are converted, else all charts in the document are converted to objects.

To have the ability to change the converted chart, the original chart will be copied to a layer "Cacidi Charts", which are automatically created when converting charts.

Calculate Row Totals
Select a column/row in the data grid, when using the function, the sum of the full row is inserted in the Max. Y-Value field. A function mainly used when creating different Pie Chart, that must be comparable.

Place Grid Data as a Table
All data in the data grid will be placed in a styles table. A "Cacidi Table" table style will be created and applied to the table, and are fully editable. If a box e.g. a chart is selected, the with of the table are match to the with of the selected box.

Swap Columns and Rows
The function will swap the columns to be row, and the row to be columns. Very useful when creating Pie Charts.
