A “Margin” setting is available in creating charts to help avoid cutting off labels that are too long. The margins can be adjusted in the top, bottom, left and right. The image below shows a typical example of adjusted margins. The left chart shows the standard settings where you can see the far left question label is cut off. The right chart shows exactly the same chart, but the left margin has been increased to avoid cutting off the labels.



The margins are adjusted in the Layout tab in the bottom of the Chart background panel. The default settings are:

  • Top: 5
  • Bottom: 12
  • Left: 8
  • Right: 8

The image below shows the margin settings.
