Managing Charts?
I do like Working with too. But sometimes I will have a higher heading called Chart Management for example, and then break out each task in lower-level headings like Zooming, Selecting Time Ranges, Exporting...

I like the gerunds for specific tasks. If I write contextual info for each gerund, then I might go to another level for specific procedures like To Select Time Ranges and the provide the steps.

Regards,
Lin Laurie

>My go-to substitute for "Using" is probably "Working with".

Yes, an excellent answer! (And a typical phrasing in such docs, which is a good thing :-).

Thank you,
