Help with Texel - How to create charts?

Post by 1200XLMULE »

I've been trying to make a line chart in Texel but cannot get the OK button enables.

Suppose I have dates in column A, with A1 being the text string "Date". Dates range from 01 Jan 1990 to 10 Jan 1990.

Suppose I have values in column B, with B1 being the text string "Val1". Values are any number between 1.0 and 2.0.

I select the range A1:B11, click on Insert->Chart, and start working through all the options.

Is my dataset invalid? How can I tell?

Thanks!

Do you have Artworks installed? Is OLGA installed? Both are needed, as Texel doesn’t contain an own implementation of chart drawing. Artworks does the vector work, and OLGA functions as a object linking bridge between the two.

Thanks for the reply!

No, I do not have either installed. It looks like I have some Google hunting ahead of me. :)

Can you offer me some tips where I can find these programs? I should mention I am running Texel on a STe.

Thanks again!

You should be able to find Artworx links here in this forum. OLGA is OpenSource

Oh, oh! That didn't come up in my Google search. Thanks for the link! I will try installing this tonight.

I clicked around the site a little bit and saw a link called "Adapted Software". That page lists ArtWorks! Unfortunately, that specific link did not work. :(

Very cool! Kind of interesting to see the English language pages don't have a section for Atari software but the German language pages do.

Those price don't look unreasonable. Honestly, I wouldn't mind paying for an all-in-one Texel package that has ArtWorx, OLGA, etc all integrated. Fonts would be nice but not super critical.

Hello! Note that you also need a multitasking system for Texel to generate charts in a smooth and integrated way from ArtWorx over OLGA. I use Geneva with Jinnee on my side, and Texel is able to generate graphs.
