Graphbuilder: option to rotate labels

☐ cool new feature
☐ could help many users!

☑ removes something that looks like a bug

☐ nice to have

☐ nobody needs it

 

 

What inspired this wish list request? 

In GraphBuilder, there is an option to add labels "by value" directly inside the graph.

Unfortunately, there is no option to adjust the orientation of the label. Therefore, labels are sometimes hard to read:

What is the improvement you would like to see? 

For axis labels and annotation text, there exist options to adjust the orientation.

Please implement a similar option to adjust the orientation of "labels by value."

 

Why is this idea important? 

A the moment, the only chance to make the labels readable: "move the mountain"

With the new option, the user could make the labels readable ... and keep the original format of the plot.

More often, I returned to Excel charts just because in Excel can rotates the label (options).

The availability of a single feature can have a huge impact on decision making - especially if a feature is just available in the current software and missing/different in Jmp.

A tiny disadvantage/bug/misfunction can balance many benefits.
