For the v8.5 release: On the chart creation screen click on the Layouts button at the bottom, then select Define Layouts. You may adjust the default layout selections there and also create additional layout definitions. Go through each data group (center column) and select the elements you wish (right column).

This is a very powerful feature but many people either are unaware of it or haven't used it to any extent. I have layouts with very minimal data (most people on a given amount of paper) to very detailed :-)

You might find the Generations Infomation Sources and Generations Tips postings at of some use.
