Moving Chart Labels
Click the Edit button to change a wide range of aspects of the graph, add titles, and use various tools to customise the chart. One of the most useful tools allows you to drag the chart labels - very useful if you have a cluster of points with overlapping labels. Click the Edit button, then the Tools tab of the Edit dialog, the Add... button, and choose 'Drag Marks'. When the chart is displayed, you will find that the cursor displays as a hand symbol on hovering over a data label, allowing you to drag the label to the desired position.
NOTE: any alteration of other aspects of the graph will cause the labels to return to their original position. Therefore, moving the labels should be the last alteration you make before printing or exporting the graph.
