Yes, I'm actually fighting that very issue...I've only EVER had version 11.00.11154.0 IR. Actually, went through the QV designer training and looked at example solution which, of course, renders perfectly...but then I went to the source chart and modified the legend or chart size by just a smidge, (talking about the <ctrl-shift> to see/modify the red boxes for chart size etc) Presto, the problem occurs. Legends are truncated, and/or the space for the legend is eaten up by the chart. I ran another test where I created a simple chart and didn't change any of the sizes, and it rendered just fine. As soon as I resized via Ctrl-Shift, the symptoms appeared. Just tried again on a slightly more complex chart and modified legend attributes without issue. Seems that it has something to do with the resizing/moving of the legends ??
Good Luck, I hope this gets fixed, 'cause it's painful! and I like to move my legends around!
Having same issue, but just found a way to solve this "feature". Right-click your chart, Select Properties, go to General and click "Reset User Sizing"-button. Try run the Report again to see if it works.
How ever, this does not help Mark R (above), who wants to modify the legend or chart size by the "<ctrl-shift>"-option
