    On some of our pie charts, the label's overlap each other and make the number's hard to read.  This can be because the pie chart slices are small.  This is producing a visual issue.  Is there a workaround to this?  Can I force the numbers to come out farther away from the pie chart?

    You might want to look into using label connectors. You can use this code-behind to do it:

    RadChart1.Series[0].Appearance.ShowLabelConnectors = true
    RadChart1.Series[0].Appearance.LabelAppearance.Distance = 10; 
    RadChart1.Series[0].Appearance.LabelAppearance.LabelConnectorStyle.Color = Color.Blue; 

    Or if you prefer the declaration approach:

    <telerik:ChartSeries Name="Series 1" Type="Pie">  
        <appearance ShowLabelConnectors="true">  
            <LabelAppearance Distance="20" LabelConnectorStyle-Color="AliceBlue">  

    Hope this helps :)
