I want to display the data labels outside the slices with leader lines if the slice is small enough to warrant it.
I have got most of the way there but the trouble is the labels often get messed up and end up overlapping one another or appearing too far away from their slice.
When a label is selected, you can start typing, overwriting the current text.
If you want to keep the existing text, enter text editing mode by pressing Note: Column includes stacked chart, clustered chart, 100% chart, Mekko chart, waterfall chart, and their rotated variations. Additionally, some chart decorations also support labels: When using think-cell, labels are automatically placed at their appropriate positions.
I have a worksheet where I create a pie chart from data from a database.
The chart changes based on the data it is displaying so the slices often change size.
We can see "property" and "redemption" overlap whilst "macro" and "gold" have ended up too far away resulting in superfluous leader lines appearing.
Is there some VBA script that is good at repositioning the labels without these problems?

The frustration with this approach is that all too often the values of the chart elements will need to be updated or changed forcing user to manually readjust each of their connector lines in turn.
With some simple charting trickery in Excel 2007 one can easily make a waterfall chart with connectors that will update automatically as element values are changed.
I have a mixture of charts on a dashboard page, and everything looks fantastic except for one issue - you have to hover over a pie segment in order to see the underlying % or value.
For a dashboard view, my users would prefer to just quickly see some data labels on the segments - as with Excel - possibly easier to explain with an image: https://support.office.com/en-gb/article/Display-or-hide-data-label-leader-lines-in-a-pie-chart-d7e7c62e-aaa5-483a-aa00-6d2c437df61b The problem with other solutions I've found here are that they are simply displaying the value in the segment, but some segments are too small for this to be the way forward.
