I'm in AI 2020. Creating pie charts. Enter data along rows. Make sure style says Legends in Wedges and First Column in Front. When I apply the data, the wedges conform to the data, but the numbers aren't showing inside the wedges? Why not? Where are they? What am I doing wrong? Please help!!
Try putting each number inside quotation marks in the top row for the labels and have the data as numbers in the 2nd row.
What @Myra Ferguson said is correct, but only part of the story. You must put the top row in quote marks as shown:
Then you need to double click on the graph tool to get the pop up menu, so that you can change the preference from Standard Legend to put it inside the wedge. Once you do that, you can change the size of the type of that number if you need to.
Now that I've tried it, I see that it works great, but now, after I've made color and font changes, when I edit the data, the point size of the numbers go back to their default. I'm happy to say that the colors hold when editing at least, but does anyone know how to make the numbers remain the desired size–not the default?
And while I'm talking about AI secret fixes, can you also tell me how to place a percentage sign after the numbers in the pie chart? If I do it manually, after editing the data, the % signs disappear.
