I have just introduced a layout change in one of my charts (barchart)
=> Instead of displaying the total of five types of costs, I have the barchart stacked now so I can display the segments representing all five individual cost_factors and the total nr. on top
<=> Now, however, I notice that at some point in that process (I'm going to redo it step by step now to find out exactly when) I have a lot of blank space inside the charting_area - but above the maximum of the y-axis - that goes up to 140k, and above that there are approx. 5cm ...
Can anybody tell me what can be the reason for that?
well, it's not quite resolved - not at all actually. I merely think I know what is the reason, even if I have no idea why it happens.
- Up to now I used to have only one column for the total of those five types of costs - blank space above was 0.
- Now I have that divided into five stacked segments and with the nr. of segments´, that space increases.
(I have the same issue in another chart where there are now two stacked segments - the blank space there is less, but there is some - which is not there if I disregard that difference and have just one undivided column ...
I think you will find the reason only if you reduced your chart maximal to one dimension and one expression and adds it step by step. But before try to set the max. values for the scale manually (maybe by expression to count/sum the max. - for each expression ?) and look if you could adjust the chart-parts per mouse (press ctrl+shift to reach the red-lines inside the chart).
please find attached a small sample xls file and the qvw with the chart I mean. As it is, the columns are undivided, all in one piece.
When you deactivate those expressions and activate the specific ones (for the two types of damages) instead, you'll notice that some blank space is introduced - not much, but that will be more with every additional segment.
