  • Expected behavior to ensure the chart is readable.
  • When there is not enough space to display some of the chart legend labels, the legend labels that would overlap are not displayed, so this is why it only show some of the legend labels. 
  • When the chart is even smaller, and there is no space to display any of the legend labels, the legend is not dispayed at all.


  • When the Chart Legend is not displayed, you can perform one of the folowing:
    • When designing the Story, resize the Chart to be large enough to allow room to display all the Chart Legend labels; or
    • When viewing a Story, select the contextual option "Full Screen", to view a larger version of the Chart, which will then show all the Chart Legend Labels.
