I should be able to order the "legend" and the values for each legend category in a stacked bar chart. This is similar to "series order" feature in Excel

This can be done via Sort by Column already

Need to be able to sort Legend by Value not just alphabetically

How many votes needed?

You should be able to order legend by wither draging the stacked bar portion and move it, or the legend itself. Why is this not a thing? I just had t go through a 30 min tutorial of creating relationships, new tables etc to be able to change the freaking order ? They should be changeable even from the format under data colours, just drag and move around. How can a company as rich as Microsoft have developers make a programme that is not intuitive. Can you tell I am frustrated?

Add to that the ability to Wrap the legend, rather than having to page left/right to see the categorise that don't fit in the available width

Any plan for this feature in 2021? This is really important for me, thanks.

Simple chart designs like this need to be added to Power BI.

Chart formatting is extremely poor compared to Excel. I acknowledge that responsive design has certain trade-offs, but having more controls would be extremely useful.

I have some dirty hacks by suffixing legend items with 00n, for example but this really makes this chart less effective than it should be. I have to use R instead to be able to get this chart quickly given greater control - unfortunate that this has not been addressed.

This is already possible using custom sort order right? Example here: https://www.seerinteractive.com/blog/reorder-powerbi-legend/
