Thanks, it is not really what I am looking for, adding the labels on the top of the bars consumes quite a lot of space, for this type of long labels, IMHO, they should be placed inside the bar.
I think the question might indicate a deeper root cause: why Tableau did not maintain a consistency here? Why some bars are not showing labels at all while other similar ones do?
Thank you, I would like to make the final work more beautiful, at least more readable, so here is what I did:
1. is there a way to set a distance or whatever so that the two labels on one bar pair won't get overridden?
2. How can I indicate the sorting? for example, I want to set the sorting based on CancerType, or by Survival Rate. If I did the sorting, do I have to lift the top 10 filter and sort it and then apply top 10 filter? Is there a way applying the filter directly?
3. How can I move the legend (***, on the top-right corner to within the chart area)
could you please share sample packaged workbook to explore your queries
Raymond -- Specify your tableau version as well.
Nice job separating the sexes by size. that will help you a lot.
I think you can choose "center" for the left-right positioning of the labels so that the values show up in the middle of the bars, and adjust the top-bottom positioning to TOP so that the male numbers show up in the orange space and the female numbers show up in the blue. (I'm only guessing here, which is why Sunil asked for a sample workbook. We can try things out together.)
Each of your other questions have solutions too. Some of them depend on how things are actually set up in the sheet. Again, a workbook helps with that.
Merci! I was super confused why only half my labels were showing up. The screen shot is very helpful & appreciated!
