Default Axis labels wrap until print/print preview

POS Office 2007

I have a simple chart with 2 lines utilizing both the left and right
vertical axis. The horizontal axis labels are wrapped nicely so that
all fit, or so one thinks. When I print, the labels do not wrap, but
overwrite each other. Even in print preview, the labels are all run
together. Is there somewhere I can force a wrap of the labels?

Sorry, I should have added that this chart is on a page with other
charts. The font size is already 6, so it cannot reasonably be made
smaller pr my audience will need a magnifying glass to see it.
Thanks!

You could insert a hard line break in the cell containing the labels, by
holding down Alt and pressing Return.

Thanks John. I resized the chart just a tiny bit and all the labels
wrapped as I wanted them.
