Some of you may have wondered what determines if the data for a pie chart on a Start Center Result Set displays below or to the side of the graph?
The list of data values will display on the side or bottom depending on the amount of room available. This usually corresponds to setting the columns on your Start Center
to being narrow or wide in your Start Center layout. If you are on the wide side of the Start Center then it will put the values along the side (Result Set on right side below),
and if it is on the narrow side then it puts the values on the bottom (Result Set on left side below) in order to maximize the graph size.
However, if you have multiple pie graphs on your Start Center then it will select one of the sides to be wider and on the wider side the values will be
along the side, while on the narrow side the values will be underneath. This is done automatically and unfortunately there is no setting to force the values to always display either
on the right side or below.
