Horizontal bar chart - make dimension two-line?

Hi,

I have a horizontal barchart with a Dimension that can be very Long - it varies a lot in length. I want to make the actual charting_area as big as possible, so I thought it would be practical to just use a formula for the Dimension and include a line_break in some cases.

Is that possible at all with a horizontal barchart and can someone Show me how to do this?

Thanks a lot!

Best regards,

DataNibbler

Hi pradosh,

that does not seem to Change anything about the Chart. Sorry.

@ Pratyush

Yes, limiting the legend helps to make it shorter - but the line_break is not made automatic. If a Label is too Long for the Limit that I set there, it simply goes "blablu...". How do I get a second line for that to begin with? I can then write a formula and generate the line_break myself - in fact I already had that, but the second line just wasn't displayed, so that part was lost in space ...

Thanks a lot!

Best regards,
