Font-color for pie-Chart labels

Hello community,

 

is it possible to set the font color and maybe font size of a pie-chart label in Data Studio?

In my scenario the label text is in the pie-chart. For better readability the text-color should be black.

Hi Sascha,

 

Yes, that seems to be a current limitation of pie charts. The label styles actually apply to the chart legend, not to the series labels. 

 

I've reported that to our engineers. 

 

The best answer I can give at the moment is to either choose a different series color that contrasts better, or to use a different chart (e.g. a bar chart).

 

Best regards

 

Rick

Hi Rick,

 

Is it possible to change the font size of the data labels in a pie chart?  The default size is kind of small. 

 

Thank you!

Best,

Si
