Overlapping labels in pie charts

Summary

Overlapping labels in pie charts

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

11 and 12

Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.8

Description of the issue

In both FileMaker Pro 11 and FileMaker Pro 12, the pie chart labels will overlap each other and become completely unreadable, if the pie slices are too thin. SEE SCREENSHOT BELOW. This makes pie charts basically unusable, because we can't really predict in advance how thin the pie slices are going to be. Can't FileMaker figure out a way to rotate the labels 45 degrees, or move the labels further from the pie or something?
