How do I add some space between the labels and the axis on a chart? The positioning (cross other axis, labels inside/outside..) is of no use.

2 less than elegant hacks: Double click on the chart to enter edit mode. Double click on the axis you wish to edit. X-Axis 1. Go to Font Effects tab. 2. Add an overline. 3. Change colour of overline to match the wall of your chart. Y-Axis 1. Go to Numbers tab. 2. Uncheck 'Source Format' 3. Change format to add spaces before or after the label.
