You can adjust the positions of the data labels to make them easier to read in the chart. You can also change the font and font size.

Add Headers and Footers to Slides

Add Headers and Footers to Slides

The terms Header and Footer typically come from word processing programs; these denote repeated elements that show at the top and bottom of every page. Headers and Footers work similarly on PowerPoint slides: the Footer is a line of text that usually appears at the bottom of a slide. Typically, the Footer area includes three placeholders: Date, Footer, and Slide number. By default, the footer with one or more of these three placeholders appears on every slide in a presentation, but you can change that as required.
