Leader lines for Excel doughnut charts

Doughnut chart with leader linesIf a doughnut chart is just a pie chart with a hole in it, why then does it behave so differently from a pie chart, for example when it comes to creating and positioning chart labels. In a doughnut chart, you can’t just drag the chart label outside of the wedge to create a label with a leader line.

Can leader lines be added to doughnut charts?

Sure. But you’ll need to use a little trick.
