Pinned topic How to display chart x-axis labels horizontally in Report Studio Cognos 10?

‏2013-01-31T08:20:00Z |
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:

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21340989

but in cognos 10 I do not find the same propertes described above.

How can I change this behavior?

thanks a lot Maria

    I'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.

    I've deleted the old chart and I've created a new chart and now I can see the Label Control Property

    This means that if I use the new charts available with Cognos 10 I cannot control manually the x-axis label ?

    Here is a link to the elements which are not migrated when moving from the legacy charts to the new charts.

    Unfortunately, rotate values is on this list.

    Hi Maria,

    May I know how did you get the border around the x axis values?

     

    Thanks,
