First Major Upgrade in Five Years
I’m pleased to announce a major upgrade, to Peltier Tech Charts for Excel 4.0. The previous major upgrade to 3.0 was over five years ago, in September 2015, and the last minor build release was in January of this year.
The new package lists for the same $99 as its predecessor, but there is a $20 discount for Cyber Monday, which extends through December 12. Enter the code
Cyber2020 in the shopping cart to take advantage of this discount.
Additionally, if you are currently using the now-obsolete version of the software, you can upgrade for half price. Email Peltier Tech to request your discount code.
You can skip the following description and go directly to the new product’s web page: Peltier Tech Charts for Excel 4.0.
The interface has been redesigned, and all dialogs have been given a facelift. You can see this in the dialog below for what I call Layer Charts, which is a new chart type. Layer Charts separate each series in a chart into its own panel, so they do not obscure each other, and so each has its own baseline.
I wrote about this kind of chart many years ago in Stacked Charts With Vertical Separation.
Another new chart type is a Step Chart, which uses data points to describe horizontal and vertical steps, rather than connecting points directly. My tutorial Step Charts in Excel described these.
Both of these new chart types allow you to convert an existing chart of suitable type into the new type, rather than finding the data and creating a new chart from scratch.
I’ve introduced yet another Waterfall Chart variation, which allows you to specify free-standing values which are independent of the rise and fall of the intermediate waterfall values. Here is the Extended Waterfall Chart:
Many existing charts and related features have been enhanced. For example, Marimekko and Cascade charts now look better when the input values contain both positive and negative values.
In addition to the obvious, visible changes, there have been many improvements behind the scenes that make the program work better and in some cases faster.
