Increase space between dimension and text on axis values

Hi everyone,


I'd like to add some space between my dimension lables and the numeric values along the Y axis, as highlighted in the attached chart, so they don't appear bunched up.

Thanks!

Scott

You can just add some spaces in front of your expression to add the necessary padding:

If I understand,

you can use ctrl+shift and then move the red rectangle

and in the "Axis" tab uncheck "Truncate Label" (but alignment is left)

Here an example of the output

Thanks Petter.

That didn't work.  Something is required between '    '.  If I just put blank spaces, it is not reflected in the the graph.

I was able to solve my problem by reducing the font size and that works for now, but I woudl still like to know how to do this while also maintaining the right justification of the dimension lables.

Hi Scott,

The solution given by Petter works absolutely fine. You need to write your expression as below with preceding spaces. No need to reduce your font size as well.

= '         ' & Sum(VALUE)

Hi,

Create a variable like vSpace then assign value =repeat(' ',8).

Goto your expression ->vspace & sum(Amount).

Hope it helps

Hi Sumeet,

It tired the expression again as you suggested and it's still not working.  Check out the image below that shows my expression and results.

Hey krishna20,

I created with the variable as you suggested and it's not working.  Am I missing something?

What if you change the dimension values instead, a calculated dimension like

=[Device Activity Status] & '  '

Hey swuehl ,

I tried that and it didn't work either.

I'm struggling with this because it seems like this type of answer, where additional spacing is added, is working for folks, but it's not having any impact on my chart.
