Tooltip in Cognos Line chart(11.1Viz) is breaking and moving to next line.

We are using Cognos 11.1 R5 version and using Reports. We are using Line chart as a visualisation. Here tooltip in line chart is breaking and moving to next line. This is happening only for last values in the chart. Attached the screenshotMARCH | 05/2018 - 04/2019 is breaking and coming in two lines.

Issue - Last, 2nd last, 3rd last trend point tooltip (ie. where end of window size approaches) - 2nd line in the tool tip wraps to 3rd line, Can we get this tooltip displayed in 2 lines like in the case of other trend points? Attaching screenshot for the visualisation we are using.

    This behavior is due to the fact there isn't enough screen size to display the tooltip in 2 lines. There is no way for tooltips to go over the screen size.
    A possible solution is no be able to adjust tooltip font size which is a valid feature request.
