While the default of not showing overlapping elements makes sense for labels, it is less reasonable for diagrams, where a partial overlap is better than missing some.
Furthermore, the option to show them all is hidden in obscure (for average user) options.

My suggestions:

  • enable "show all" by default
  • put the option to remove the overlapping ones in the main dialog, easy to find.

[FEATURE] Add checkbox to always show diagrams for a layer

Unlike the global labeling setting this applies only to diagrams,
and only for a single layer. Defaults to on. (fix #8706)

Thank You very much. I've found "show all" option for charts after two hours or so spent with google ;-) So, it's not a bug, it's feature...
Your suggestions are OK, this option should be visible in main dialog and enabled by default.
