    Histogram - "Text Options" -->"Textbox" is greyed out.

    Hi everyone,

    I tried looking for similar threads but couldn't find one, if one is indeed available, please feel free to shut this and post a link.

    I have a histogram and all I'm trying to do is to rotate its horizontal axis values so that they can either show vertically or "slanted", I understand this would normally be done via the "Textbox" in "Text Options" but this appears to be greyed out.

    I also couldn't find related videos on Youtube. Can someone please help?

    Haven't been able to attach the spreadsheet I'm working as it keeps saying the upload failed..

    I'm not sure what gave you the impression that this would be a "textbox" option. I would expect this to be accomplished by formatting the horizontal axis and changing the axis label alignment so it is rotated. Try this tutorial: https://www.excelhow.net/rotate-axis-labels.html
