Legend Doesn't Fit


When I add a legend in on my graph, it does not fit all items like excel does. The text size is already the smallest it can go. I have the same problem with every position. When will this issue be fixed?

Why can't this be fixed ie. enable the legend to wrap so it fits within the visual

It's not really an error so much as a limitation of space - there's no way to fit that much data in a legible format on a visual of that size.


What's the solution you're expecting? Word wrap for the legend? Smaller text?

A word wrap like Excel would probably be ideal.

Yes, I have the same problem. Moving the legend to the right/left does not look good. Ideally, it would allow you to wrap text. Also, would be nice if you could separate legends on dual axis visuals.

Hi @Anonymous


Did you try to change position to left or right ?
