    Trend lines in charts with multiple mark types (version 7)

    Brian Smith

      Hi, I should start this by reiterating that we are still working with version 7. I have created a time-based line chart with several measures shown, and have added trend lines. (Forgive me, I'm getting an error when I try to paste an image, so I have added the pictures as attachments instead.)

       

      Then I have added a bar chart on a second axis.

       

      The trend lines for my line chart go away when I add the bar chart, and nothing I do seems to be able to make the trend lines visible again. When I right-click the Line marks, the popup menu even indicates that the trend lines are active. However, when I make the bar chart into a line chart, the trend lines return – so it only seems to apply when I use multiple mark types.

       

      Is this a known issue in version 7? Any thoughts about a workaround?

       

      Thanks,

      Brian Smith
