Combine charts easily

Two is better than one

Datylon charts can be combined with each other in Illustrator to create new exciting variants. These charts can be driven by one single workbook allowing to update the charts with just one click.

Datylon charts scale in a smart way

Smart scaling

A simple but huge time saver is the scaling behavior of Datylon charts. Changing the size of the chart does keep all relevant properties intact like font and label sizes or line widths. This means charts can easily be repurposed to fit in another layout or output channel without redrawing.
