Note: This feature is only available on the Classic Editor.

When you add an icon row or icon grid chart to your design, you can customize the appearance of the icons by adjusting the fill value, changing the number of icons, changing the colors or changing the icons used in the chart.

Resize and reposition

Move the chart to the position you want on the design canvas. 

Change the dimensions of the chart with the bounding box (click and drag to resize). 

Change the fill value

Icon charts show two colors to indicate the value.

The first fill color is controlled by the Fill %.

Click the Fill % drop-down and change the percentage to change the number of icons with the first color fill in your chart. 

In the Venngage Editor, a design page with a light blue background is open, with some black text as a heading and a large pen nib icon at the bottom appears in a partial view. A user clicks on an Icon Row chart on the canvas to select it. The chart appears with one row of five simple icons that show a person in silhouette; the first 2 icons are dark blue, while the rest are a lighter blue. In the top toolbar, different tools for customizing the display of the chart appears. The user clicks on the Fill % to open a drop-down and changes the number from 25% to 48%. The user then changes the Icons per Row from 5 to 15. This causes the arrangement of the chart to change: the icons themselves become smaller, and the first 8 icons are now dark blue, with the remainder appearing in light blue.

Change the number of icons

Icon Row and Icon Grid charts can be customized to display different numbers of icons (the fill will stay the same, based on the percentage you select).

In the Venngage Editor, a design page with a light blue background is open, with some black text as a heading and a large pen nib icon at the bottom appears in a partial view. A user clicks on an Icon Grid chart on the canvas to select it. The chart appears with three stacked rows of simple icons that show a person in silhouette; each row has 6 icons across, and the first 9 icons are dark blue, while the rest are a lighter blue. In the top toolbar, different tools for customizing the display of the chart appears. The user clicks on the Fill % to open a drop-down and changes the number from 50% to 47%. The user then changes the Icons per Row from 3 to 6, and the Icons per Column from 6 to 7. This causes the arrangement of the chart to change, and the number of icons in each row to change, as well as the number of rows to increase, and the icons themselves become smaller.

 

Select the chart. Use the drop-down menus to change the number of icons per row in an Icon Row chart, and the number of icons per column and row in an Icon Grid chart. 

A partial view of the Venngage Editor shows the top of the design canvas and an Icon Row stat chart with 5 simple icons of human silhouettes. The user changes the Icon per Rwo from 5 to 10, causing the colors of the icons to change; initially, 4 of the 5 icons appeared in dark blue, with the fifth icon in light blue; now, 7 of the 10 icons appear in dark blue and the three final icons at the end of the row appear in light blue.

Resize the chart to change the spacing between the icons in the chart. 

Change the colors of your icon chart

Icon Row and Icon Grid charts have two colors determined by the fill value (%). The first fill color is equal to the fill value and the remainder is represented by the second fill color

These colors appear as Color Tool icons in the top toolbar when you select the chart. 

Select your chart, then click on the color you want to change. Use the Color Tool widget to adjust the color to your liking; click the 'x' in the top right corner of the widget, or anywhere on the canvas, to save your changes and close the widget.

In the Venngage Editor, a partial view of a design page with a light blue background, and some black text as a heading, appears. An Icon Grid chart appears on the canvas, with 3 rows of icons with 7 icons in each row. The icons represent simple human silhouettes, in two different shades: dark blue and light blue. A user selects the chart and clicks on Color Fill 1 in the top toolbar, which appears as a dark blue tile the same hue as the darker blue icons. In the Color Tool widget, the user clicks into the color wheel to selects a new color, then clicks a color tile under the Swatch Colors and then uses the light-dark slider next to the color wheel to adjust its black value. The color of the icons is now a dark teal. The user clicks on the design canvas to close the Color Fill 1 widget, then clicks on the tile that appears next to it in the top toolbar, for Color Fill 2. This tile is the same color as the light blue icons. The user clicks on the same teal color swatch under Swatch Colors in the Color Tool widget, then uses the opacity slider to make the color more transparent, making those icons appear lighter on the design canvas.

Change the icon image

Double-click the icon chart. You can also click once on the chart to select it, then click Replace Icon in the top toolbar.

Scroll through the icon gallery and choose a new icon; or enter a search term to narrow your choices.

On a light blue design canvas in the Venngage Editor, a user selects an Icon Grid chart with three rows of 7 icons of simple human silhouettes. The user clicks 'Replace Icon' in the top toolbar and the Replace Menu opens in a panel from the left sidebar, displaying a gallery of icon thumbnails. The user scrolls through the gallery and then enters 'marketing' in the top search bar, returning results relating to marketing. The user clicks on some of the icon thumbnails in the replace panel, like a simple shopping cart icon and a megaphone icon, and the icons in the Icon Grid chart on the canvas are replaced with these selections.

 

Select an icon. You can click anywhere on the page to exit the Replace Menu.

A simple Icon Row chart appears on a white design canvas in the Venngage Editor. The icons are simple human silhouettes in two shades of blue, one darker than the other. The user double-clicks on the chart to open the Replace Menu and clicks on a thumbnail of a star in the gallery, changing the icon in the chart on the canvas to stars, before clicking on more thumbnails and changing the chart to simple circles, then circled dollar signs.
