Text wrapping is needed in Bar/Line chart dimension labels

Text wrapping is needed in Bar/Line chart dimension labels

The most frequently used Qlik charts like Bar/Line hides the full dimension label via ellipses (..., yes the undesired three dots at the end of the trimmed dimension label). We need the wrapped dimension label, at least have two lines to fit the dimension value or there could be a chart property that allows to choose the number of characters we would like to have for dimension values.

There are some extensions which provide this feature so it would be great if Qlik can provide this feature natively.

as a parameterised option rather than a blanket change?

Yes

We are using extension to achieve this below behavior but we are missing many properties of native charts in the extension -

Native chart start showing ellipses(...) for long labels even the overall chart space is sufficient to wrap and show full label.

Thank you all for your feedback on ways to improve our product. While this is something we understand would be useful, it's not on the short-term roadmap. Please continue to show your support for this idea by commenting and liking.

Thanks,

@juanjaramillo1 Doesn't look like a priority for Qlik, its more frustrating that Bars are unevenly allotted more real estate than the dimension labels. 

Also not many people have liked this idea so its not making needed impact. We use nprinting a lot and text wrapping can male a huge difference in our area of work.

Hope you already liked this idea 😊

Hi Qlik,

I have also raised same idea where customer has highlighted this limiation https://community.qlik.com/t5/Suggest-an-Idea/Show-complete-labels-on-x-axis/idc-p/1924729#M9359. Request qlik to look into this and change the feature so that clients can benefit.

Thanks

Working in a government setting that has very long text values (program names that are displayed frequently) the inability to wrap text for dimension labels is the most common complaint from our senior executive.  It sours their experience sufficiently for them to ask whether we should be looking at other tools in the market.

there's also to consider the fact that labels do overlap also inside the charts!!!

Hi @Patric_Nordstrom 

Hope you are doing great.

Is there any plan for multi line dimension values or organizing bar space better so that label gets more visual space?
