Legend stretches the chart or even jumps above it - problem

Having a problem, that if I load too many traces into plotly chart, or these traces have too long names, the legend stretches the chart, as you can see on following image:

Or even the legend is jumping on the chart:

How can I deal with this? How can I tell the legend to stay still on it’s place? Or maybe there’s a method to specify the width and length or even the position of legend?

Try setting

layout.legend.x = 0 // corresponds to left edge of plot area
layout.legend.x = 1 // corresponds to right edge of plot area

layout.legend.y = 0 // corresponds to bottom of plot area
layout.legend.y = 1 // corresponds to top of plot area

That’s not possible at the moment.

Our legend position is far from perfect at the moment. You might want to subscribe to Add legend 'auto' x|y and/or 'container' (x|y)ref · Issue #1199 · plotly/plotly.js · GitHub for the latest development info.
