    I have a stacked bar chart w/ 4 series values. When the first value is large, the axis values appear to be shifted away from 0 and the size of the 2 series bars is no longer proportional.

    For example, I have 4 Series:
      -> 2861
      -> 0
      -> 0
      -> 2

    In this case the 1st bar (2861) should be much larger than the 4th (2). However, the 1st bar appears smaller b/c the axis has shifted to 2860 - 2863. This is misleading.

    I'd like to force the axis to start at 0 and the size of the bars always be proportional (based on the size of each series value).

    Is there a way to do this? I've tried setting narrowRange, min and max in the stackblitz example.

    Hi David,

    Thank you for the demonstrated example.

    Indeed, the [min] input property of the ValueAxisItemComponent should be used in order to achieve the desired behavior. The following markup demonstrates how to set it properly:

      <kendo-chart-title text="Units sold"></kendo-chart-title>
          <kendo-chart-category-axis-item [categories]="['Q1']">
        <kendo-chart-value-axis-item [min]="0">
        <kendo-chart-series-item type="bar" [stack]="true" [spacing]=".25" [data]="[2861]">
        <kendo-chart-series-item type="bar" [data]="[0]">
        <kendo-chart-series-item type="bar" [data]="[0]">
        <kendo-chart-series-item type="bar" [data]="[2]">

    Here is the updated example:

    I hope this helps. Let me know in case further assistance is required for this case.
