padding is controlled under the inspector in filemaker 14, under the appearance tab. It works for chart objects as well. I've attached a screenshot of the chart object selected next to the appearance tab of the inspector. You can also control corner radius from this area.
however there is no padding in the appearance tab in the inspector.
That's why I put the word padding in quotes - and wrote [quote] what appears to be a massive amount of padding [\quote]
Very sorry - my message was not that clear perhaps... (vielleicht ich sollte auf Deutsch schreiben)
What I should have written is: It looks as if there is padding, but there is no padding when I use the inspector.
If you look at the file I attached, you will see that there is no padding assigned in the inspector. If you even just click on the chart itself in browse mode, you can see that there is a large space above the chart. It's this space that is mucking up - for the chart is not longer vertical aligned..
Hope that is clearer..
Thanks, I'm answering from my phone so I can't look at your file currently.
