I'm building a report with Pie Chart and I would like to make some formatting changes, which I'm unable to do so.
I would like decrease the font-size for the data labels of the chart without changing the chart size. I want the figure (ie chart) to be big enough and just decrease the data labels fonts.
I'm using Crystal Report version 9.0
I'm using Crystal 10, so perhaps it is slightly different.
I can see the data labels (slice labels) from the Design tab or from the Preview, If I left-click on one of these labels, Windows adds 'handles' around it (8 small squares marking the boundary of the field). I can now right click on the selected field (or choose the Chart menu option) and choose Chart Options, followed by Selected Item.
OK, I tried it with Crystal 8.5, and the behaviour is slightly different. Perhaps Crystal 9 is closer to 8.5 than to 10?
In Crystal 8.5 if I right-click on the chart, one of the menu options is 'Chart Analyzer...'. Click on that and I get an Analyzer tab next to the Design and Preview tabs. In the Analyzer tab I can select the data label, get the windows handles, right-click and select Format Chart->Selected Item.
