    Highlighting an area of the graph as a target zone

    I'm using Google sheets.

    I just realized that graphs with a transparent background don't work on mobile. I had made the cells behind my graph to highlight the target zone for the lines in the data, but the don't show on mobile. Is there a way to have the target zones be part of the graph? I moved the graph over on my mobile on order to show how I've made the areas a different color.

    I'm a total spreadsheet novice, so I don't know what's possible, and I'm not very good at describing what I'm trying to accomplish.

    you could convert the chart to an image, then remove the chart and insert the transparent image and position and resize the image to suit your needs.

    an alternative would be to use a different type of chart.

    It's difficult to say based on your picture and description, but I am guessing you want some variation of the techniques described here: https://peltiertech.com/excel-charts...izontal-bands/
