Duplicating charts

I have duplicated a chart (copy>paste) and modified some elements in the duplicate chart only to find that the original was also modified by the changes in the copy.

Is there a way to dis-associate the copy from the original so that they are independant?

Thanks

Josh

Hi

Use alternate state for that chart or use detach to the original chart

Re: Duplicating charts

Thank you.

But that is not what I am looking for. Your suggestion will "freeze" one chart from changes in selection of data.

My intention is to copy one complex chart into another but change some of the dimensions. (The original chart is "based" on Month while I want the copy to be based on Sales Person)

When editing and modifieng the dimension in the coppied chart the dimension in the original also change.

Thanks

Re: Duplicating charts

That did the trick.

Indeed they both had the same ID.

Thanks
