Really enjoying Balsamiq 3 for making mockups, but today I ran into something of a headache - pie charts.
While I was able to mock up what I needed for a client, it would be great if making pie charts was as flexible out of the box as other highly configurable controls are.
Most controls support some textual content to provide functionality, and I think pie chart could support something similar.
For example, supporting a value of:
20, #ff0000 30, #00ff00 50, #0000ff
This would give you a pie chart of three segments, covering the multi-segment angle as well as colouring, since for some customers I could see that being really important - one of my customers looked at the diagram I’d made and understood that the mockup wasn’t ‘final’ for anything else but that the colours had to be ‘right’ before they’d accept it and it had to be representative, they couldn’t quite imagine a pie chart that didn’t have the right number of segments in the right colours.
It would be great if we could get a ‘donut’ option as well but a more configurable pie chart would be amazing for the future.
Thanks for consideration,
