chart labels need to wrap or auto size

I had to set my pie chart labels manually rather than allowing them to come dynamically rom SharePoint because the series labels will truncate if they don't fit into the pie space (note the "H" in Housekeeping on the top left of the screen shot below). So my ask is two fold:

 

1. Allow for series label wrapping (2 words or more)

2. Auto rotate chart if it would be better for the placement of the labels (in the screen shot below Housekeeping could have been rotated into the top area.

 

Thank you.

The column charts have this issue, as well. If the series labels are too long, it will truncate them and add an ellipsis. Currently, there is no way to increase the size of the label area, so the only option is to reduce the size of the text until it fits. Unfortunately, this often makes the labels too small to read.

 

Given this idea has been "planned" since 2017, I'm not optimistic about seeing this functionality added. I've come to expect this level of apathy from Microsoft. 😓
