    I'm going to allow fixed width legends in my application and let the end user choose between wrapping and ellipsis for legend item texts that are too long. In case of ellipsis, a legend item tool tip would be ideal for displaying the full text.

    This would certainly be a welcome feature. Imagine a column chart with 2 years side by side with a large number of products in each year, arranged from highest sales to lowest. You might want to zoom on the 3 highest ranking products.
    Legend doesn't have to be a problem: you can easily fit 10 products in a legend. Alternatively you could show the productname in the datalabel.

    I would prefer a 'real' second x-axis, because I would get a all axis format options already available for axis formatting. I made a study that uses a second x-axis:

    When can we expect this feature? I was hoping for Highcharts 4, but it's not there...

    One arrow at the end.

    Now I come to think of it: an arrow between the first point of Series 1 and the first point of series 2 (and between second points, third points, etc.) would be very useful too. It could indicate the development between two years.

    This would be useful with score cards where you can connect a number of scores (through time)
    See http://jsfiddle.net/kzoon/uQMCA/2/ for example

    I hacked distance as percentage into highcharts.src.js and it is really very simple.

    I add this line to PieSeries.translate (on line 14204 in v2.2.5 (2012-06-08)):
    CODE: SELECT ALL
    if (/%$/.test(labelDistance)) { //labelDistance set as percentage
    labelDistance = pInt((pInt(labelDistance) / 100) * (series.center[2] / 2));
    }

    and this to PieSeries.drawDataLabels(on line 14204 in v2.2.5 (2012-06-08)):
    CODE: SELECT ALL
    if (/%$/.test(distanceOption)) { //labelDistance set as percentage
    distanceOption = pInt((pInt(distanceOption) / 100) * (series.center[2] / 2));
    }

    Can someone at HighCharts please consider adding this or similar code to HighCharts.js, so I don't have to use an edited version of highcharts.src.js?
