Bar Chart Label Area not wide enough for category labels, needs custom width property in Format

When creating a (horizontal) bar chart, often the space allocated for the axis (Y Axis: category or series) is not wide enough if the names are long. There should be an override setting in the Format page to adjust one way or the other.
Also, there is the ability to place the labels on the RIGHT side, but no way to reverse or mirror the bars such that the zero point is on the right side.
Would also like the ability to RIGHT JUSTIFY labels on the LEFT side of the bars, and LEFT justify labels on the Right side.

        the Attribute Slicer allows you to define the portion that the bars take to give more space for the y-axis labels. need to have the regular bar charts to do the same.

        Need to be able to make the labels wider. It allocates 90% of the width to the bar and truncates the labels.
