How to split X-axis data labels into two lines

Hi All Datanuts,

 

I got an issue with the axis labels. I'm using a Stacked column chart and I want to split the X-axis labels into two different lines. Also,  "Concatenate label" is not working for me. Please suggest after referring to the snapshots.

Hi @viveksasi94,

 

You need to setting 'sort by' x axis fields before turn off this option, then label will been expanded to multiple rows.

You may have to do the x-axis sort again, even after you turn off the "Concatenate Labels".

 

I've seen cases where the sort option looks right (highlighed with the yellow indicator), but even though it's already highlighted, go ahead and click once more.

I have the same issue - nothing I do will stop the heirarchy from concatenating in my stacked col and line combo chart- it looks awful. I've tried sorting , resorting turning concat on and off about 50 times but it still shows both my x axis values in one string - YUK.

 

This has to be a bug. Can anyone help?

Hi @viveksasi94,

 

You can try turn off 'concatenate label' to cancel multiple axis label concatenate, but current it seems only works for date hierarchy field.(when you turn off this option and use date hierarchy structure in it, it can be split as multiple lines)

Thank you Xiaoxin Sheng for your response. But in this case turning off Concatenate Label does not solve my issue. 🙂
