2656547 - Diagonal Data labels are not working in SAP Analytics Cloud


  • When multiple (more than one) dimensions are selected while creating a story in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC), Diagonal Data labels change to default/horizontal.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2018.10.1

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a new Story choosing either live connection, import or through a file.
  2. Build the chart with multiple dimensions.
  3. Select diagonal labels in the styling tab.


  • This is by design.


  • If you have multiple measures or multiple dimensions, the labels won't display on the diagonal, only on the horizontal. This is by design and documented, Please see: Styling a Tile.
