PowerPoint Export Changes Legend Layout

This was working fine yesterday but today when I exported the online Power BI report to PowerPoint, the legend (which usually resides along the top of this chart) has mysteriously moved to be left-aligned, and covering the charts. This is on every chart & page in my report, so it's not just a single page. I have not changed this report recently.

I have this same issue, starting two days ago.  No changes to the report, just lost the ability to export without the legend being left-aligned and covering the chart.

I also encountered this problem, please fix asap!


Please note that a work-around is to use the 'left' positioning for the legend.


In my case the legends in the power bi report which is recieved in the email have changed from top-center aligned to left aligned and all the reports are messed up. Hope Microsofe resolves this issue on top priority.


i am also having this issue. Can we know when this will be fixed?


When will this issue be solved? What is the current status?
