Pie chart percentage visuals overlapping

I have a pie chart with 17 different categories. On the smaller slices, the percentages are awkwardly squished together and formatted sort of awkwardly. I have tried resizing it, but this does not help. Is there any way to fix this, other than to have less categories?

Pie charts can work when you have a few values but with 17 components you'd be better off using a bar chart.

Hi @ld17 ,

 

My workaround is to try increase "Rotation" to show as much details as possible:
