How do I widen Data Labels in MS Powerpoint Pie Charts?

My Data Labels in my Pie Chart are Category, Value. Even though there is plenty of room in the Pie Slice, the text is wrapping, which I do not want. I click on the Data Label, and though I can move it around, I can't re-size it. I right-click on it, and whether I choose Format Data Label or Format Data Series, there is no option for widening the label, re-sizing it, or de-activating wrap-text. Is there a way I can stretch this Data Label out, so it extends across the whole slice?

    Same problem, and it sucks that we can't widen individual labels. Really, really should be fixed. Arrggh!

Hi There,
What I normally do when the text wraps in a chart, is to click on the chart, then use the Formatting Toolbar, and change the Font Size to 8pt or type '6' in the font size box and enter. this should make your text smaller and it won't be wrapped.

You wouldn't be able to resize the Data Labels. The only thing you can do is either resize the Chart Area so that things will space out accordingly or right-click and format the Data Labels and make the font smaller.

Hi,
Generally, once a file is corrupt, it's gone. So what I'd do, is just recreate the changes using one of your slightly older versions of the file. This time taking care to make sure you know exactly which one you're editing. Maybe saving a copy to a USB flash drive in addition to uploading a copy somewhere.
Use PowerPoint Repair Toolbox. The PowerPoint repair tool reads and analyzes the damaged files and exports data the restored data to Microsoft PowerPoint. For more:

I want to copy an Excel chart as a Image onto a PowerPoint Slide (Office 2007). What is the sequence of APIs to apply?


Copy worksheet data to a PowerPoint presentation
  1. In Excel, select the worksheet data that you want to copy to a PowerPoint presentation.
  2. On the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click Copy za006044679.gif.

za010165428.gif

Keyboard shortcut You can also press CTRL+C.

  1. Click in the PowerPoint presentation where you want to paste the copied worksheet data.
  2. On the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click Paste.

Keyboard shortcut You can also press CTRL+V.

  1. Click Paste Options za006043532.gif next to the data, and then do one of the following:
    • To use the original format of the copied data, click Keep Source Formatting.
    • To use the document theme that is applied to the PowerPoint presentation, click Use Destination Theme.
    • To paste table data that you copied as text, click Keep Text Only.

Notes

  • If you don't see the Paste Options button, you may have to turn it on. Click the Microsoft Office Button za010077102.gif, and then click PowerPoint Options. In the Advanced category, under Cut, Copy, and Paste, select the Show Paste Options buttons check box.
  • If you paste the data into a PowerPoint table, the Paste Options button is not displayed.
Tips
  • To paste the data in another format (such as a worksheet object, HTML format, bitmap, picture, or to text format) or to paste a link to the source data in Excel, on the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click the arrow on the Paste button, and then click Paste Special. In the As list, click the format that you want to use.
    • If you want to edit the entire worksheet later, click Microsoft Office Excel Worksheet Object. Clicking Microsoft Office Excel Worksheet Object provides access to the entire worksheet in the presentation, including data that you may want to keep private. To automatically update the table in the presentation when changes are made to the source data in Excel, click Paste link. Both of these options also preserve the Excel formatting, even when the formatting features that are used are not supported in PowerPoint. If you saved the source workbook before you copied the data, you can also click Attach Hyperlink to insert a hyperlink in your presentation that directs you to the source data in Excel.
    • To paste the content as an Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) (OLE: A program-integration technology that you can use to share information between programs. All Office programs support OLE, so you can share information through linked and embedded objects.) PowerPoint application icon (rather than pasting the actual content), click Microsoft Office Excel Worksheet Object, and then select the Display as icon check box. You can click the icon to open the application and then view the content.
    • If you want to use HTML to copy the data to PowerPoint into a PowerPoint table, click HTML format.
    • To paste a static picture, click Device Independent Bitmap or Bitmap, or to paste a picture that can be ungrouped, click Picture (Enhanced Metafile) or Picture (Windows Metafile).
    • To paste the data as formatted or unformatted text, click Formatted Text (RTF) or Unformatted Text.
  • To paste the data as a hyperlink that directs you to the source data in Excel, click the arrow on the Paste button, and then click Paste As Hyperlink. If the workbook that contains the source data has not been saved yet, this option is unavailable.
  • If you want the range of data that you paste as a Microsoft Excel Worksheet Object into a PowerPoint presentation to expand when the corresponding data expands on the Excel worksheet, you can define a name (name: A word or string of characters that represents a cell, range of cells, formula, or constant value. Use easy-to-understand names, such as Products, to refer to hard to understand ranges, such as Sales!C20:C30.) for the range of data in Excel before you copy the data. You can then paste a link to the named range by using the Paste Special command. On the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click the arrow on the Paste button, click Paste Special, and then click Paste link. This works only when you copy data that is not in table format in Excel.

What's data series in excel


When you are creating charts in Excel a data series refers to the sets of values that are going to be on the chart, be it a line chart, a bar chart, a pie chart etc. Different types of charts can work with different kinds of series. If you select the data you want to chart, and use the Chart Wizard, it will detect what data you have chosen and define it into series for the purposes of being on the chart. You can do things like give names to the series or set colours for them or put titles and legends on the charts for them, and lots of other things. When you are working with a chart, a Chart menu will appear on the menu bar and there are options in it to do things with the different series that are in it.

3D Extrude and Bevel in Illustrator CS 3


Chances are you have chosen 'stroke' color as 'blank/empty' in the first pie chart, and 'stroke' color as 'black' in subsequent charts, by mistake. So as a result the charts are having a black outline. You simply have to select 'stroke' or 'outline' color as blank as you did in the first chart. Colors can be chosen in the 'swatches' palette, either for 'fill' or 'stroke' or both. Hope this solves the problem.

Unable to create chart in excel


Check the source data that it is using to create your chart (right-click choose SOURCE DATA). The result you're getting sounds as if it may not include all the data you want to chart. Generally should include at least two rows AND at least two columns.
