While creating certain drawing objects I need to have precise, easy control over certain dimensions A recent example that is frustrating me is that I need to draw versions of Pies with specific radii. That is, I need to have a series of similar or concentric pies, each with a specific, precise radius. The Pie/Donut tool allows you to specify the Hole Radius, Start Angle, End Angle and Total Angle, but I cannot enter an exact circle radius. Let me know if I am missing a specific feature or means, but I haven't found it yet. If not present, PLEASE add as a recommended future feature. D
Pie tool could be hugely improved if there was the possibility to use percentages as angle unit. As it is now, you must calculate the angle [(360/100)*percentage value] So you need a calculator at hand (boooooring, slooooower). It could be acceptable, but problem here is that a lot of percentages (specially in investigation charts) result in values with decimals, and you cannot use decimals as angle value, it gets rounded. At the end, on a pie chart the circle is not complete as the different rounded values sum are always less or more that 360º and you must adjust it by hand (to add to the long process of calculate and input values) I suggest to allow it to use decimals on the angle, and to accept or to have an specific field for percentage values. Or, as others suggested, create a good chart tool… but that is another story.
