Here is my PPT 2007 slide with a nice stylized chart:

The frustration is when you want to nudge the chart into position using the arrow keys it does not move… Each click of the arrow key just changes the selected item within the chart:

My solution is this – a standard autoshape box:

When you select a chart in PPT 2007 AND any other object, the focus is now on the group of items, not the individual chart. So using the arrow keys moves both items.

Move the chart into position, then delete the temporary box. Done.
