In pie charts, the space between the most left and right edge of the pie and its labels.

Pie Height

In 3d pie charts, the height of the pie.

Pie Drop Shadow

In 3d pie charts, the length of the shadow (if it is activated in the Pie section).

 

X-Axis


X-Axis to Axis Label

In bar and line charts, the space between the X-axis and its label.

X-Axis to Plot

In 2d bar charts and line charts, the space between the X-axis and the plot.

X-Axis Tick Size

In bar and line charts, the length of the ticks on the X-axis.

 

Y-Axis


Y-Axis to Axis Label

In bar and line charts, the space between the Y-axis and its label.

Y-Axis to Plot

In 2d bar and line charts, the space between the Y-axis and the plot.

Y-Axis Tick Size

In bar and line charts, the length of the ticks on the Y-axis.

 

Z-Axis


Z-Axis to Axis Label

In 3d bar charts, the space between the Z-axis and its label.

Z-Axis Tick Size

Line Drawing


Connection Shape Size

In line charts, the size of the squares that mark the values in the chart.

 

3d Axis Sizes


Manual X-Axis Size of Base

In 3d bar charts, defines the relation between the length of the X-axis and the Chart window size. Please note that the Automatic Chart Axis Size check box in the 3d Angles section must be deactivated, otherwise the size will still be calculated automatically.

Manual Y-Axis Size of Base

In 3d bar charts, defines the relation between the length of the Y-axis and the Chart window size. Please note that the Automatic Chart Axis Size check box in the 3d section must be deactivated, otherwise the size will still be calculated automatically.

Z-Axis Series Margin

In 3d bar charts, the distance on the Z-axis between the individual series.

 

Gauge


Border Width

In round gauge charts, the width of the border around the gauge.

 

Gauge Ticks


Border to Tick Distance

In round gauge charts, the space between the inner edge of the border and the ticks that mark the values.

Major Tick Length

In round gauge charts, the length of the major ticks (i.e., ticks that show a label).

Major Tick Width

In round gauge charts, the width of the major ticks (i.e., ticks that show a label).

Minor Tick Length

In round gauge charts, the length of ticks that do not have a value displayed.

Minor Tick Width

In round gauge charts, the width of ticks that do not have a value displayed.

 

Gauge Needle


Needle Length

In round gauge charts, the length of the needle. (Note that the percentage is calculated from the diameter of the gauge, so if you choose a value greater that 50%, the needle will point to somewhere outside the gauge!)

Needle Width at Base

In round gauge charts, the width of the needle at the center of the gauge.

Needle Base Radius

In round gauge charts, the radius of the base that covers the center of the gauge.

 

Gauge Color Range


Border to Color Range Distance

In round gauge charts, the space between the inner edge of the border and the outer edge of the color range.
