Control Chart labels overlap

I have all the markers in my control charts labeled with the value present in one of the columns. (ex: Column value = Boston, the marker is labeled with "Boston", etc.) When I plot these, some of the labels overlap making them unreadable. It won't let me move the labels around within the chart. Does anyone know a workaround for this?

Thanks in advance!

You need to use the new Control Chart Builder platform.  Control Chart Builder, just like Graph Builder, will allow you to grab a marker label and move it around.  This functionality is not available in the old Control Chart platforms.  You need to use Control Chart Builder.

Hmm, I can't use Control Chart Builder for a few reasons, but when I was trying that before, I could move the labels around for that instant, but I wasn't able to get the movements to save so that they remained where I had placed them the next time I opened the chart...

Thanks though!

I'm not sure what you mean by "next time I opened the chart".  I was able to get the movements to persist in the JSL script that I got by selecting any of the script menu commands.  I also go the changes to persist through a journal.  Can you provide more information about what that comment means?
