# Add or delete a graph in Pages on iPad

You can display your data using 2D, 3D and interactive graphs.

When you create a graph in Pages, you type graph data in the Graph Data editor (not in the graph itself). If you later make changes in the Graph Data editor, the graph updates automatically.

If you add a doughnut chart and want to resize the centre hole, tap , tap Graph, then drag the Inner Radius slider to make the opening larger or smaller.

To add data, tap the graph, tap Edit Data, then do any of the following:

*Enter data:*Tap place holder text, then enter your own data.*Change whether rows or columns are plotted as a data series:*Tap in the toolbar, then tap an option.

Tap Done in the toolbar.

You can also copy a graph from another document, from Keynote or Numbers.

## Add an interactive graph

An interactive graph presents data in stages so that you can emphasise the relationship between groups of data. Interactive charts can be used to show data such as sales by group over time, expenses by department and population changes by region per continent. The example below shows the growth of three species during a three-year period.

You can interact with the graph using a slider and buttons or buttons only.

Tap , tap , then tap Interactive.

To change the type of control used for interacting with the graph, tap the graph, tap , tap Graph, then tap Buttons Only under Interactive Graph.

## Delete a graph

You can delete any chart in your document without affecting any table data.

Deleting the table data you used to create the graph doesn’t delete the graph; it simply clears the graph of all data.
