    Hello forums,

    We are having a weird issue with RadChart in that sometimes the chart goes wonky when it is placing the labels for the dots on a line chart.  Yes, the dots are a bit close together, but it doesn't seem like they are all that terribly close together.  It's possible that this is just a RadChart bug.  We are currently using RadChart ( AJAX) version 2012.2.828.40.  Attached are some sample graphs for you to peruse.  Any suggestions of things we could try to tweak to keep this from happening would be welcome.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hello Scott,

    The issue you're experiencing is caused by setting the IntelligentLabelsEnabled property of RadChart to true. This feature has been added to prevent item labels from overlapping each other when there are too many items in a series, just as you've guessed.

    Therefore, we can suggest 2 courses of action: you can either set IntelligentLabelsEnabled to false or you can give the RadChart more space to render itself. Please, consider these and see how they'll work out for you.
