Change the order of items in the legend

I often pull year in as the breakdown dimension into a line chart. But it's inconsistent as far as what order it puts the years in in the legend. For instead, say I have three line charts on a page. The first line chart will have 2015, 2016, 2017 in the legend (this is how I'd prefer), the second will say 2016, 2015, 2017, and the third will say 2016, 2017, 2015. How do I get them all in a consistent order?

 

Thanks!

Definite bump on this one, it appears to order based on whichever year is higher for whatever metric is being measured. Anyone know a workaround?

Think there are a couple of post on this and is something that cannot (at least not yet) be controlled

 Bump. It's been a year since this post, have there been any updates? 

 

For me, it's worse than just the year. I have these metrics: "P1, P2, P3, K1, K2, K3" but in the legend, it shows as "P3, P1, K2, K3, K2, K1" which makes it VERY messy when trying to make sense of the bar graph. As with the line charts. Is there still no fix?
