SAP Crystal Reports 2013 formatting pie charts, legends and titles

I am new to Crystal Reports and am really struggling with formatting pie charts. I need to customize various pie charts to match designs a client has approved. I have deselected auto-arrange in the chart expert but when I make changes to things like font size on any of the elements I mentioned in the question, everything ends up re-positioning and overlapping in the center of the sub report and the pie chart changes size. Also I am trying to match up the look of multiple sub reports containing pie charts and the font sizes display different even though they are the exact same font and size in the editor (apparently font size is relative to the size of the sub report?). I am at a loss as to how to customize the pie charts when everything I do seems to be overwritten. I am hoping for some suggestions. TIA

    One suggestion:

    Right-click the Pie Chart > Format Chart ? Check "Lock Positions and Size"

    Second suggestion:

      Thank you for your answer. Selecting lock positions and size does not solve this issue and purchasing more software is not an option for me.
