Starting version 13.1, the ability to show node details in the pie chart visualization was added. For pie charts created before the feature was available, the Show Node Details option is displayed in the Pie Chart Settings dialog to enable the node details feature.

Checking the Show Node Details box upgrades the Pie Chart to the new version settings, at which point further editing can be done through the details view.

Upon clicking the Settings link of the pie chart with enabled node details, the Show Node Details option is not displayed anymore.
