Drop shadow on font in pie charts

November 30Hits:0
Advertisement
I cannot figure out how to remove the drop shadow on the font in pie charts. It looks ok if I have the font remain in white, but if I change the font to black, it looks really fuzzy.
No, the shadow box is not checked.
Yes, I have checked out the text inspector, and there is nothing there that is helpful.
This is driving me crazy. Any help would be greatly appreciated

I found a workaround.
It requires a bit of surgery.
At this time, it must be done on the index.xml embedded in the document.
If you open it (I did that with the free TextWrangler.
Search for the string :
You will find this piece of code :

Edit the piece of code which I set in bold underlined

</sf:shadow>
</sf:textShadow>
by
<sf:textShadow/>
It would be a good idea to change the labels color before doing that because when the shadows are removed, it's not easy to see the white labels.
Now, it's time to switch off and go to sleep but tomorrow, I will try to find the file defining this descriptor.
Maybe it's the template, maybe it's a generic resource.
I will try to edit this resource.
If it's in the template, The workaround will be to create a custom template with no shadow on pie labels.
