I want to have weekdays in my gantt chart, using the pgfgantt package with the pgfcalendar package. However the fields for the weekdays are too small.


\begin{tikzpicture}[x=.5cm, y=1cm]
    \gantttitle{Week 1}{7} \\
    \gantttitlelist[title list options={%
        var=\y, evaluate=\y as \x%
        using "\pgfcalendarweekdayshortname{\y}"%
        }]{0,...,6}{1} \\


enter image description here

This seems to be caused by the value given for x in

\begin{tikzpicture}[x=.5cm, y=1cm]

Using x=0.7cm (or a larger value) fixes the problem.

As of now the solution does not work anymore. Any idea how to fix this? – Uwe Ziegenhagen Dec 18 '12 at 19:48
Try inserting [x unit = 0.8cm] immediately after \begin{ganttchart}. – Ian Thompson Dec 18 '12 at 21:55
