How to increase the limit size of displaying legends?



I need to use one of the column in a table as legend. This column has 15 different variants of data. When I plot a line chart and use this column as legend, at top it displays all variant names but when I hover over data in line chart only 10 legend names are displayed? How could I increase this to 15?


Thanks in advance.

Hi @GovindM ,


There is no option for you to increase limitation on number of legend. But you can create your custom legend for it:

Hi @v-deddai1-msft ,


Thanks for reply but with the video link you provided we can create custom legend. But, still when I hover over line chart then only initial 10 legend values are displayed.


Hi @GovindM ,


Yes, it is a workaround.  limits on legend display may caused by the length of legend. There is no such option for change the limits. so you could use the workaround as the video link provided. Or you can create an idea for it in to improve the power bi.
