Exporting a bar chart with slider to excel creates a huge gap between slider and chart. While in dashboard it looks fine.

Steps to reproduce the issue

  1. Create one Analysis with a Bar Chart and a Slider in it.
  2. Create one Analysis with a Bar Chart and no Slider in it.
  3. Create a Dashboard and insert the two Analysis next to each other.
  4. On the dashboard see that the Row where the Slider is in it has the same height as the Bar Chart without the Slider.
  5. Execute the Dashboard and export it to Excel.
  6. See that Chart with the Slider is positioned below the big cell which should not be.
