Hello Dave Lowery,
Unfortunately we haven't been able to reproduce the issue locally. Please, have a look at the attached sample application, which makes use of StackedBar series in different themes where no spaces between bars exist regardless of the set theme. Could you modify it so that the problem you've encountered is reproducible for our developers to look into and provide assistance.
