The pie height can be used to represent the total value of the pies. Set the Minimum height and Maximum height values by typing a number in page units or clicking the buttons. The pie with the smallest sum of data values is set to the Minimum height, and the pie with the largest data value sum is set to the Maximum height. The remaining pies are scaled between the height values by the Proportional method selected on the Map page.


Wall Fill

By default, the wall fill is shared with the slice fill set in the Pies page. Apply a uniform wall fill by clicking the Apply uniform wall fill check box. See the fill properties help page for more information on editing wall fill properties.


Apply a gradient fill to the pie walls by selecting Linear or Radial from the Type list. Click on the Colormap selection to pick a predefined colormap for the gradient, or click the button to create a custom colormap in the Colormap dialog. Select a Vertical, Horizontal, Inward, or Outward gradient direction in the Gradient Direction list.
