Mekko Graphics includes the ability to add a Vertical Line. Vertical lines draw across the entire chart at any point on the X axis.

VERTICAL LINES APPLY TO: all Mekko and Bar charts unless they have a linear axis.

 

TO ADD A VERTICAL LINE

Choose Insert Vertical Line from the Vertical Line dropdown menu in the Edit Chart Toolbar. You may also right-click in the chart area and from the Format Chart Context Menu, select Insert Vertical Line.

       

Vertical lines insert at the X axis midpoint. Subsequent insertions will place the line halfway between the highest line value and the maximum value of the data on the chart.
