screenshot showing CPU label 8 x 1 stacking

I install system-monitor 5.20.90 on openSUSE Tumbleweed KDE.

The CPU percentage label at the bottom does not arrange it self that maximize CPU graph space.
For example, as shown in the attached image, when the windows size is too narrow, the label becomes 8 x 1 stacking and when it have enough space it become 1 x 8 stacking. There should be in between to maximize the graph size.

I believe the layout changes to be horizontal when there's enough room to show all of them in one row. In essence it changes in a column layout  to a row layout. Perhaps what would be better is a flow layout, so it always uses as much vertical and also horizontal space as is available.

That is in fact what I have been working on. Unfortunately it didn't make it for Plasma 5.21 but 5.22 should feature a redesigned legend that can do more than one column.

Fixed in Plasma 5.22 with the new legend! Much better now.
