How to plot multiple lines on a chart

Hi, I'm totally new to power bi so I'm sorry if this is really obvious.

I'm trying to create something very similar to the airline engine part maintenance analysis report in the industry/airline example (see page 4 of the link below) i.e a line chart with multiple lines plotted on in.

I cant find a way to do this out if the box in power bi, can anyone tell me if this is possible without creating a custom visualisation?

@Andyr You simply need to use line chart visual in power bi desktop and drop a column to Legend section to get multiple lines.

Re: How to plot multiple lines on a chart

Is there a limitation to the number of values in legend (or number of lines) in a line chart?

Re: How to plot multiple lines on a chart

I'm afraid that the Line Chart doesn't work if you need a legend with multiples measures on values.
