Is it more intuitive for legend on bottom to be read by column or by row?

What would you read this legend?

By column (i.e. read left column, and then right column) or by row? If it was by row, then assume the green Column 6 item would read as Column 2 etc.

How do you think most people would prefer read this?

With that number of different measures included in the chart I would read vertically/down the column. If it was four or fewer measures, then I'd read horizontally/across the rows. Six measures would be a crap-shoot.

So read in the direction of the most values @djmangen ?

So if 3 rows & 2 cols, read vertically. If 2 rows and 3 cols, read horizontally?

Yes that probably summarizes the POV succinctly.
