Setting Angle -15 on XAxis produces lots of wasted space


When setting an angle of anything other than 0 for the XAxis the size allocated to the axis jumps to allow for a 90 degree angle, which when set to say -15 degrees squashes the chart and creates a large amount of wasted space.

Can this be coded around / are we missing something?
Picture showing the effect:

Thanks in advance


When the chart detects rotated text, it reserves space for up to 90 degrees. To disable this, use TMSFNCChart1.XAxis.AutoSize := False; & set TMSFNCChart1.XAxis.Height := 55 (or less/more depending on the content)


Thanks for this, though it does feel a little like guess work. Could it be considered as a future fix?

We'll investigate
