Description Markus Mohrhard 2015-04-20 03:50:31 UTC
Based on OOXML interop this makes sense and would improve chart layouting. This would remove the need for some manual layouting and therefore improve our chart layouts.

In office, if you right click the legend->Edit Legend, there's a checkbox, "Show the legend without overlapping the chart". Is that this feature? Would a sample file with it enabled/disabled help?

In addition to improved Excel interoperability, I think it would be very useful for us to have to ability to toggle on/off automatic resizing of the chart around the legend and title.

So we already support this to some degree. We just need to make it an explicit property.

To see how it currently works have a look at the new chart sidebar which allows to switch between manual and automatic legend layout.

I love the new chart sidebar. It's a great way to view and edit the chart properties. In regards to this issue, I've tried it with existing and new charts and  overlay/no-overlay seems to be working well. The only issue I noticed is it should be possible to set no-overlay property with top,left,right legend placement. Is making it explicit just a UI issue, or does it still need to be separated into 2 properties along with ODF/OOXLM support?
