Not able to show Legend if one value/measure is chosen for a visual

I am not able to show the legend if there is only one value is inserted in a visualization.

As I do not have description of the measures in my title, so I need to show the legend.

 

I have only chosen one valueI have only chosen one valueI have only chosen one value. Thus I can not decide to show or not show legend.I have only chosen one value. Thus I can not decide to show or not show legend.I have only chosen two values now. Thus, I am not able to show legend.I have only chosen two values now. Thus, I am not able to show legend.

 

 

This issues seems to involve all charts where it is possible to have several values.

This is actually be design if you do not drag data into the legend field. To describe your measure, you can try to use the Title as below.

Hi Herbert,

 

From a visualization best practise perspective I would say this is not the correct way. I would like the axis to me alligned.

 

As it is also discussed in the webinar How to Design Visually Stunning Power BI Reports (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rS8xmkoasQU) tou need to use "correct alignment".

To axises on the below graphs does not start the same place, as I have legend in one of them and not in the other. I know I could write my legend information in my title, but I can not have the color shown in the title.

 

Please see this as an issue, because it really is a issue. 😕

Totally agree with linekrogh.  We should at least get the option having a single value showing in the legend or not.
