Cards and Shelves


Every worksheet contains a variety of different cards that you can show or hide. Cards are containers for shelves, legends, and other controls. For example, the Marks card is where you control mark properties. It contains the mark type selector along with controls for Color, Size, Label, Detail, Tooltip, Shape, and Angle. The controls that are available depend on the mark type.

Cards can be shown and hidden as well as rearranged around the worksheet.
The following list describes each card and its contents.
