Controlling the Width of the Legends in Graphs


The ledgends is not displaying all the description in most of my graphs, but I have to stretch the bounding box a lot to get the full description, which leave a lot of wasted white space, is there a way to control thge width of each sagment, or spaerate the ledgend from the graph so you can control it location and size?

I want a same font size through out, also it is harder to read if you make it so small. even then you are left with so much White space, I just need to move the Legend into the wasted white space and closer to the graph.
