Linefeed on Chart X Axis Label?


(Matthew Fuerst) #1

Greetings all,

I’ve got a List report with a chart on it.

Some of the strings labeling the x-axis can be somewhat long, so I was doing newlines (specifically \r\n) inline in the string I am handing off to Combit to attempt to get them to format and look nicer.

It looks like Combit is ignoring the newlines.

It also won’t word wrap them, instead just making the font as small as possible. This is causing bleed over for some of the x-axis labels that are still too long to be fit, even with the smallest font.

Any tips or tricks?

Dear Matthew ,
thank you for your note.

A break is not allowed at this point.
A workaround might be to use the Left$ () function, it has a parameter for the output of “…” at the end if the string is too long. A rotation of the axis labels might also help.

Kind regards

Thanks for the response Erdal,

I had not considered rotating the label some, that will help.
