Stacked bar chart does not show labels for many segments even if there is room

I have noticed that sometimes with my stacked bar charts Power BI does not add a label to some of the segments. This makes sense when the segments are very small as there would not be any room to display the value. But it happens even when there is plenty of room to display the value for that segment. I know these blank segments have a value because I can hover over them.

 

How can I correct this?

I tried lowering the font size but this had no change. After experimenting a bit I found that changing the Label Density setting corrected the issue. It was set at 50%. Setting it to 100% but labels in for all bar segments except one that is too small to accept a label.

 

Thank you for your help!

Can you just change the font size a bit and check.  If possible please share a sample pbix file after removing sensitive information.
