select your Chart and press Strg+Shift

you will see red lines around data section and legend

you can move the box for legend to suit your requirements

if you Need e.g. on top:

size the legend box until vertical only 1 item is shown and horizontally all items can be placed

move box to top until box goes from left to right over complet Chart

that should Show your legend in one row on top (if there are not too many items)

It depends on the legend you want to move.  Titles are fixed as they are, but you can turn those off and replace with Text In Chart (on the Presentation tab).  In the settings here you can specify an Angle (degrees) which will twist the text round.

On some charts the legends can be made to run along the axis by ticking the Label Along Axis checkbox on the Axis tab of the properties.

With regards to further placement please see this post:

Hope that helps.

Hi,

If don't like the results and legend values are always the same, Another option would perhaps create a container with text objects:
