Repairing Text Collisions

OnePager does its best job to ensure that your chart is readable, and does a lot of work to ensure that your task labels are rendered in a way that they're readable and don't collide with other labels or other shapes. However, these algorithms aren't perfect, so on occasion, you may find that a task label needs to be repositioned to improve readability. There are two ways to do this.

Re-optimizing Selected Tasks

OnePager's AI-driven text optimization algorithm is aware of most text collisions.

Selecting these suboptimal tasks and re-optimizing them can often lead to a better result. Do this by selecting one or more tasks with your mouse (Ctrl + Left-Click), right-clicking on any of the selected tasks, and choosing Re-optimize text collisions:

OnePager will take a second look at the text surrounding these tasks and will determine if there is a better place to position it.

Manually Adjust Text Positions

If the automatic re-optimization of text doesn't achieve the desired result, OnePager will always let you move text manually. Once you've moved it the first time, it will stay put throughout any future updates, so that you don't have to make the same adjustments over and over.

To move a piece of text, click on the text, then go to the Home tab and select a different Label Position from the dropdown:
