Create Circle Shape Object within Dashboard (Red, Yellow, Green)

Hello all,

I currently have images that I have inserted into my dashboard that look great until someone produces them within a PDF report.

I understand how to create a circle shape through a text object (changing the radius to 360) as well as chaning the colour. However, can someone tell me if there is a way to decrease the size of the object. If I attempt to this manually I can only decrease the size width.

Regards,

Myles

Hi Myles,

if I get you correctly, what you want to do with this is display some status (red/green/yellow)?

If so, why don't you use circular gauge_charts to do this?

The height of text_objects can be increased or decreased from below only.

HI DN,

The reason why I don't wish to use a gauge_chart in this case  is due to these circular colours acting as a summary. For instance I have circular colours in red, yellow green and gray. Ontop of the inserted image object is a text object that counts the number distict project numbers with a greater than, less than, etc.

I must say I don't know how to create  acircle with degrees. But, what's wrong with a text box and setting the Corner Radius to Relative (%) and value to 100 on the Layout tab? Then, use the Width and Height values on the Caption tab to set size? You can even put your expression into the Text area on the General tab.

Hi John,

The issue that run into here is that I also have to produce a Report in PDF. When adding the new objects to the report, the end up reverting to a square box.

Any idea of a way around this?

To reinterate my image quality is not suffering in the dashboard, rather when I Print to PDF. Using Adobe for reference.

Myles
