 Hi @ovinasca,


By my tests with both the version of Power BI Desktop March and April, It really have the issue as yours.


This is a  issue has been reported internally before: CRI 64580161. You could find it in Power BI issue forum.


For the workaround, I suggest you could set your legend position to Right or Left, it will show better when you export the report to Power Point.

I am having the same issue with files that I used a month ago where the legend showed correctly in the presentation.  I believe this to have changed during the last update to PowerBI.  I am frantically trying to do my quarterly reporting with graphs that arent showing correctly there a fix for this?
