Parallel Drawing Object

You can clone drawing objects that already exist in your chart. For example, you may want to draw a second arc or trendline at the same angle as the first. Parallel drawing objects are exact replicas of your original drawing objects. The style, properties, calculations used, and so on remain the same. Once the clone is created, you can change its style, properties, placement, and so on if necessary.

  1. Select and right-click the drawing object to copy.

  2. Select New Parallel to clone the drawing object selected.

    The new drawing object is inserted directly above the original drawing object.

A parallel drawing object is placed above the existing drawing object. The Snap mode feature does not affect the placement of parallel drawing objects.
