As I said in my previous post, setting width to the chart legend is not supported in Kendo UI DataViz. The configuration of margins and paddings is not mandatory, but currently this is the most suitable workaround for specifying the place that the legend takes. For convenience, I prepared a small example which illustrates such approach in action.
