Text orentation on graphs

Hi all,

I have a stacked bar chart with text labels over the bars. I’ve noticed that the text changes from horizontal to vertical depending on the ratio of the height to width for a given stack. I was wondering if there was a way to fix the orientation so that the text is always horizontal? I’ve attached an image of the graph below!

Hey Henry,

Yup I’ve had this issue as well. Just add a textangle attribute to 0 (default is auto) in the layout portion of your figure.

Here is the reference page: https://plot.ly/python/reference/#bar-textangle


Hi There,

Thanks very much, adding in textangle = 0 to the trace seem to have done the trick!

Thanks again,
