How can I create a chart?
A chart can be created from the post editor and the charts library. The process of chart creation from both places is similar.
📝 Note: Before creating the chart, please note that by default, the plugin saves an image of the chart in your Media Library. The purpose of this is to be available for download in case you enable it in the front-end actions and for rendering the chart as an image on the AMP version of the page, which is done automatically. To prevent creating a copy of the chart as an image in your media library, just uncheck this box in the chart settings (click for image). Please note that if AMP is enabled on your website, this option is automatically turned on.
