Horizontal Legend Paging
The legend paging that was implemented works well for vertical legends, but not for horizontal legends. In the case where there are many plots on the same chart, the paging buttons take up too much vertical space on the chart, they should be floated to the left or to the right, or the legend should become a "scrollable" object to avoid this issue.
P.S. Another issue is that the legend has some clipping issues if there are more than 2 or 3 pages.
This can all be seen here:

Any updates on whether this has been introduced in Highcharts or not ?
Any hack to incorporate this would also be appreciated :)
Up votes, we still need this feature.

It would be a good feature to have.
This would be a great feature to have and make lives easier for a bunch of dev's who currently are building this functionality on their own by hacking HighCharts library
Sample screenshot can be seen on: https://github.com/highcharts/highcharts/issues/7513
We have a similar requirement here.
Highcharts has provided the legend.navigation API, which provides paging navigation when legend is overflown. e.g: http://jsfiddle.net/gh/get/library/pure/highcharts/highcharts/tree/master/samples/highcharts/legend/navigation/
However, it currently only supports vertical paging navigation. In our product, UX team requires to display chart legends on top center of the chart, and when the legend overflows, provide left/right arrow keys to scroll the chart legends to the left/right.
Can we have this functionality?

This is an issue where the placement of the legend needs to be aligned bottom due to very limited real estate on the page (i.e within a widget 200px high). Would be good to have horizontal paging for the legend for legends where the 'layout' attribute has been set as horizontal.
