Legend on two rows

Hi guys,

 

I'm new to Power BI and have an easy question, but online I couldn't find anything about this..

 

I have a chart with many variabels and want to use a legend on top. However, the terms are quite long (I don't want to shorten them). If I want to all items visible, I need to make the chart unnecessarily wide. Kinda like this:

If I narrow the chart, the items are no longer visible on the first view. Like this:

Is there an option to force the legend items to switch to a second row instead of hiding?

 

Thanks for the help 🙂

Hi @JanPortmann 

I would suggest you change the position to 'right' for Legend.

Changing it to 'Right' makes the legend a vertical list on the right of the chart.

Ah I see. I think that this option is presented to me as "Top right stacked". While it does work to make all of the legend values visible it does eat up a large proportion of the visual for only the legend. It would be great if there was an additional option of having two rows of values stacked at the top of the visual.

I have the same problem. I have a legend with multiple values and I cannot find a way to make the legend appear in two rows. I simply want the legend to be on top of the figure, and adjust the figure height such that the legend fits

Three isn't a way to continue the legend in the next row?

I'm confused as to how this actually solves the problem? It seems like this wouldn't actually change anything within the original problem other than shifting the values a few pixels to the right. Since there are too many legend options they will still be cut off.

What if I have many values in legend and they just simply not fited to chart and have monit Too many values

I have the same question. Moving the legend around is not a good solution when there are many legend values.
