If you've shared your chart online, anyone can see the data behind each bar, column, line, or pie slice in your chart by simply hovering over it with the mouse cursor. However, some charts allow you to display the values inside of them. This option can be useful if you plan on downloading your chart as a static image or a PDF file, where interactivity is not supported.
Displaying values in your chart
- Click on the chart to select it.
- Expand the Chart properties tab in the settings panel on the right.
- Enable the Show values option.
In column and bar charts, you can also choose to display the values outside of bars/columns. Simply enable the Show values outside option.
Sometimes the values will not display even when the Show values option is enabled. This happens when there is not enough space for the values within the bars or columns. In such cases, you need to increase the chart size or decrease the font size.
Displaying values in pie charts
In pie charts, the option to show values is called Show callouts. You can also display the category name next to the value by enabling the Callout name option. You can automatically calculate what the variables represent in percentages by enabling the Callout percentage option.
