Modifying an Organization Chart

Like any SmartArt graphic, you can add special effects—such as soft edges, glows, or 3-D effects, and animation—to an organization chart. If your organization chart doesn’t quite look the way you want, you can change layouts by using the SmartArt Graphic Quick Styles (New!) on the Elements Gallery and selecting layout variations on the Styles tab (New!). If you only want to change the color, you can choose different color schemes using theme colors by using the Colors tab (New!).
