I am afraid the desired behavior of the labels in Kendo UI Chart is not supported and there is no suitable workaround. I would suggest to send this idea as a feature request at our UserVoice forum
- this way the community would be able to evaluate it and if this suggestion turns out to be popular we will consider its implementation for future releases of the product. Thank you in advance.
