Charts, axis label padding/margin

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.

Hi Anon,

Have you found an answer to your question?

2 less than elegant hacks:
Double click on the chart to enter edit mode.
Double click on the axis you wish to edit.

  1. Go to Font Effects tab.
  2. Add an overline.
  3. Change colour of overline to match the wall of your chart.
  4. Go to Numbers tab.
  5. Uncheck ‘Source Format’
  6. Change format to add spaces before or after the label.
