Place a legend outside a chart?

I have several different charts on a single page that all relate to the same data points.  From a design perspective, I find having several different legends displaying the same information messy.  I'd like to display a single legend for the whole page that covers all the charts.  I can do this by just displaying the legend in one chart, but at times it covers up part of the data.  I would really like to display the legend outside all of the charts.  Is this possible?  Thank you.

You can usually create a fake legend with a straight chart by adding the dimension, 1 as expression and remove totals, the header, the caption, make cell borders transparent etc. The example posted here has such a fake legend hovering on top of the chart.

You can builld a general "fake" legend creating another graph that display only he legend (you can hide or color white expressions ( lines or bars))

In this way the new graph serves as legend, and in the others you can avoid displayng legend

Itìs an idea, hope it helps
