Hi,

I am creating a stacked bar chart with custom labels on the category axis.

If the category includes an ampersand the position of the label will be broken because there is too much space between label and chart axis. This issue does not occur when using the default label.
Encoding the character doesn't help.

Please find a simple reproduction of the issue in my dojo below. I use the latest version of Kendo (2021.2.616)

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi Beto,

In order to fix the spacing issue, render the raw values within the template rather then the HTML-encoded value:

            categoryAxis: {
              labels: {
                template: "#= value#"
              },
            },

Please take a look at the following updated Progress Kendo UI Dojo with the changes from above, and let me know if you have any questions.
