You can customize it, click on it, right click and say Format Legend and you get these options. Now these ones, Fill, Border Colour, Style, Shadow are pretty standard. The unique item here is called Legend Options and you’ll see you can specify where the Legend should appear – so maybe you want it to appear at the top and you’ll see it has moved here. Bottom – it is now shown at the bottom. Left, Right, Top Right. You can also see you can choose whether the Legend is allowed to overlap the chart or not.
