Chart font not shown with anti-alias effect

Hello,

in a web template I have two charts. One bar chart and one pie chart. Both charts show their text elements (value labels, category axis labels, title, etc.) in Verdana in different sizes. In the pie chart, all texts are shown with a nice anti-alias effect, making the texts look smooth. In the bar chart, however, the texts are not shown with an anti-alias effect; the texts look somewhat square-edged.

Is this phenomena a problem of the chart type?

Thanks to any answers in advance.

Regards,

Philipp

    I solved the problem:

    the phenomena of square-edged looking fonts occurred because the transparent and canvas colors (in the global setting of the chart) where set to the rgb-color [255,0,255]. I switched both setting to "None" and now the texts in the chart look smoother (have an anti-alias effect).

    Regards,

    Philipp

    PS: I did not check whether the phenomena was corrected EITHER by the transparent OR canvas color setting. I adjusted both simultaneously and tested afterwards.
