Overlapping text in pie charts

Hi experts,

I am a beginner user of Crystal 8.5.   I'm doing some pie charts, and typically there is, for example, one slice of 90% and the other 10% is shared between 4 more slices. The problem is, the labels for these 4 are all overlapping, making them illegible. What's the best way round this - can they be preformatted in some way?

Ta,  Colin

Right Click on the chart, select 'Chart Options', select 'General', select the tab 'Data Lables' and then check the checkbox of 'Labels on side', hope this will help

When dealing with slices that small, you may want to consider removing the Data Labels and just show a color-coded legend on the side.

Thanks BJ, works great.  I did consider omitting them altogether, but the client just has a black and white printer.
