IMPROVED CLARITY Charts are being created for setup and national rule.
I recommend looking into Adobe Indesign It is great for making charts. Download a free trial version and test it out. I guarantee it will become your favorite app. I use it for almost all my design work.
I realize that there are better programs to do this in than Powerpoint, but I’d rather not start this project over from scratch just to use another (superior) program. Thanks for the advice. Perhaps i will use it on a future project.
By the way, the PDF program couldn’t quite handle some of the transparent effects I had in the setup charts, which made them look worse than the PNG images.
