Hello. I scripted some pie charts using Graph Builder and labelled them by percent of total values.

Even though the frame size is a square (220x220), the labels are cut off by the frame/graph border. See pie charts A, D, & E:

Am I doing something wrong? Please see attached script.

A big thank you to all my topic responders...

__Dale__: How to write a Column Formula for percent of total__Jim__: Info about Graph Builder labeling (non)functionality__Kevin__: A good laugh

While Dale's stacked bar chart suggestion was interesting, I couldn't use it since I've been tasked with creating dozens of scorecards -- each with its own pie chart and other metrics.

I ended up using a rounded percent (via Column Formula) and applying "Label by Value" to the pie chart. Here are updated graphs for A & D:

While it would be nice to display a percent "%" sign, the percent numbers now show completely. Cheers!

I will second @dale_lehman comment about pie charts. And I will also comment on the Graph Builder labeling. It isn't very strong. So I am sure that you are not doing anything wrong with the pie charts.
