I have some bar graphs that I would like to insert a dotted line into to

indicate the average number, the dotted line spans the whole graph. I have

seen this done but do not know how to do it myself.

    • I'm not quite sure what you mean, that's my problem, I don't know how to

      insert the extra line.

    • At the bottom toolbar in PowerPoint, look for a line which should be beside

      the word "Autoshape". Click on the line, then draw it into the presentation.

      Then follow what Michael has said.
