Show value labes in high density data
Ranked   :     (by 5 users)
This request has been opened by : Tico

Feature description
Showing value labels on high density data charts use to be unreadable. Some desktop programs solves this making appear the value when the cursor is over a value in the chart. This is a great feature. This or maybe appling 45 rotation to the labels for avoid overwriting. We use to draw 1-minutal environment variable like O3 and this means 1440 values per grahp (1 day). Showing values is only possible with this feature.

I second this request. I use the labels to show the dates of stock transactions on the priceline of that stock. Sometimes, quite a bit of the graph is hidden behind the label. It would be nice to draw the labels in a 45 angle or maybe even have the library decide for itself what the best angle is. But that might be too complicated.

I agree with this request. Values are currently centered on each segment of the pie, but on very small segments of a 3D pie chart the numbers are difficult to read as they tend to overlap. On the original pchart you could have the value labels outside the segments (see http://maritime.elettra.co.uk/titanic/charts.html?chart=demise)

I'd like to be able skipping value labels like i can do with X axis labels, it would make my chart much more clear. You could also think about mechanism which would prevent from covering one data set value labels on others.
