Seperate Legend from a chart and display it somewhere else

I want to remove the legend from the graph and diaplay it in a seperate text box or on the side outside the chart area. Not sure if this can be done iN Power BI.

Sure you can. There is an example towards the bottom of this thread. Even though the rank legend is placed within the visual, it is in fact an seperate visual which can be placed wherever.  Is that what you need?https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Filtering-a-value-in-a-slicer-and-coloring-it-by-different-...

Hi @Anonymous , you can create a measure for each individual legend element and insert it into a "Card" visual, where you can set your color,... . Or, you can use the same measures created to put them into a "Multi line card" but you cannot color them individually.

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

No, the legend can not be splited from graph.

However, It supports custom adjustment of colors. Go format -> Data color

Also, the position of legned supports to be changed.

And, if you want to rename it, you can use New group to group them by new name.

@Anonymous you can turn off the legend on the format pane, and use a table visual to show the legend but it will simple list of values, not tagged with the color.
