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.

Or select the text in the data label, CTRL+X, and then CTRL+V and you will paste the text as a text box and you can resize the box or made any changes you want

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.

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.

I have installed an extra 1G memory but it has not


Open "My Computer".
Right-mouse-click on the 'C:' drive.
Click 'Properties'.
A pie-chart will display, showing how much disk-space is "used"
and how much is "available".
Probably, the "available" pie-slice is less than 5% of the whole pie.

What Windows did was to "expand" the "paging" file, making it 1GB larger than it was before you added the RAM. So, the amount of "used" space on your C: drive is now 1GB _more_ than before.

So, burn some CD/DVD disks with some of your files,
and then delete the files, after checking that the disks are readable, to make more "free" space on your 'C:' drive.

At 250gb its telling me the drive is full on a 500gb drive


check to see if the drive is formatted as FAT or FAT32 if it is, this could be the problem. Try reformatting it to NTFS and amke sure that there is no limit set for the default allocation size.

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.
