In the report I'm developing the chart x-axis labels are displayed vertically, but the report would be more readable if they were horizontal.
I've found an a similar problem on cognos 8 described here:
but in cognos 10 I do not find the same propertes described above.
How can I change this behavior?
thanks a lot Maria

Re: How to display chart x-axis labels horizontally in Report Studio Cognos 10?2013-01-31T08:39:10Z in response to firstname.lastname@example.orgI've received this answer from DanielWagemann in post that I had not marked as question:
"In Cognos 10 using the legacy charting engine, you can click on the Category Axis, (It shows up as abc abc abc.) Then change the label control from automatic to manual.
It may not be perfect but its a starting point."
I forgot to specify that I'm developing an active report, so I'm not sure I can use the legacy charting engine, anyway I've tried.
I've changed the Use Legacy Chart Authoring
Tools -> Options -> Advanced Tab -> check Use Legacy Chart Authoring
but I still see the same property page where there is no label control to change.

If I use new chart available with Cognos 10 is not possible to control manually the x-axis labels?

Unfortunately, rotate values is on this list.
