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

RE: Custom order for legend

Even just being able to have the legend in the same order as the columns would be a significant improvement. It's just an embarrassing lack of basic, obvious functionality.

RE: Custom order for legend

Ordering just by the value doesn't make sense in several cases. Even more currently stacked charts are only ordered by the first Y-value and not the sum of all Y-values. This creates really ugly charts.Please plan this as soon as possible. Thank you in advanced.

RE: Custom order for legend

Along these same lines, it would be nice to set a custom sort order for a field and have that carry over to the legend, charts, etc . . .
