Auto stagger band lines

876 Views, 3 Replies

At the end of the band on my profile view the labels overlap so I select the band and go to the properties pallet and change the Auto Stagger setting to "Offset Both Sides". The problem is that white lines appear above the labels on the bottom of my profile view. I have the leader line for the dragged state turned off, but they still appear. Is there some setting to make those lines go away?

The white line is the jog line.


It shows as you have it when the stagger heght is zero.


The jog line colour is based on the dragged state leader colour, so to fix it, change your dragged state leader colour to be the same as your band border colour.

Hi Jason,

That is one of those hard codes setting that we can’t control or change, the only way to make it work for you is to setting up the color and layer for the data set labels to match the color of your Profile Data Band Style.

Hope this will help.

Thank you andrewpuller3811 and machadt. I set the color of the leader to true color 255,255,255 and then sent the band to the back. Now it prints white and under everything else so it is totally invisible.
