How do we reposition a Pie Chart data point value so that they are more readable?
In the example below, it is hard to read the data values on the blue and red slices. I want to reposition the numbers and not just decrease the font.
You can try pressing CTRL + SHIFT and re positioning the chart
or maybe show the numbers in the legend
Go to presentation tab in the Chart Properties and tick Show Numbers in Legend.
It is a better alternative
result will be like below
However, I would only advise you use a Pie Chart when you are comparing 2 or 3 Values
The only alternative is to check " Show numbers in Legend " in the Presentation tab (Object Properties.) and show numbers in legend not in the near the slices.
For "Values on Data Points", and as far as I know, there is no QlikView option to reposition this values in the chart.
try this: limit your dimension to 5 and add a second expression for the labels to place below the values. Uncheck 'Show legend' in the 'Presentation' tab. See the picture below:
...there is also a solution with one expression only. The label and values start to add more and more distance to the pie so standard overlapping values are clearly visible then. See below the picture!
i) the parameter of the rank function in my example '5' gives you the starting point for distant placement of the lables and values. You can adjust it to your application.
ii) Please make always sure with the dual function to mark the 'Expression default' check box of the 'Number' tab. Otherwise it will not work.
