How to show 2 decimals for the percentage? When I unselect “Source format” in “Number Format for Percentage Value” and select “Percent” with “Decimal places” set to 2, nothing changes. On the contrary, when I go back to that “Number Format and Percentage Value” page, the “Source format” tick box is activated again…

@Ratslinger, Maybe these comments can be deleted. You can delete/edit this my comment once read. Thanks.


No, will let these sit. @GeertVc tried to hijack the question using a comment. So I posted an example. Instead of responding, and without any mention here, it was posted & answered as a new question.

Besides, maybe others will be thankful for the information.

  1. Double click your diagram (edit mode
    → black handles)
  2. Right hand click into pie → Format Data Labels
  3. Data Labels :: Text attributes → [x] Show value as percentage

PS: Please do not ask your question as a wiki - thank you.
