  1. Pie Charts - Sort order of slices

    The sort order of the slices of pie seems to conform to the most common application of Pie Charts where one wants to see the biggest slice then the 2nd biggest, then the 3rd, in a ranking. But sometimes there is a alternate meaningfull order. Case in point. I want to show a pie chart of sales per product category. I want one pie for the corporation as a whole and one for each division. I'm used to seeing product categories in a certain sequence on all my other reports, entry screens, etc. And when I want to visually compare corporate pie to division pies (and among divsion pies) it would really help if the product categories were always in the same order (and always the same color) regardless of the size of the slice. Does that make sense?
