Hi,

The proportions shown in the chart are controlled by the data itself so can't be changed.  Labels are, again pulled directly from the data but there are two ways you can make changes.

Firstly, you can open the data table and do a field calculation to reformat strings to be as you wish or, secondly, you can use a look up table.  To do this, create a new table e.g. in excel and in one field add any strings used your data that you need for the chart e.g. OTHER and create a second field containing the label you want e.g "Other/unknown".  Use create relationships to join on the field in common and use you new field as the display field in the chart.

Hello there!

    Could you expand on what you mean by "editing the thickness of the donut?" Do you mean making the shape itself larger, or making the categories appear larger?

   Additionally, the labels are based off of the column names in your base data. I will investigate to see if changing them is possible and report back.

Keep on keeping on!
