    Can weight of lines connecting data points be edited?

    John Grant

      Is it possible to edit the weight of the lines connecting data points in a line chart?

          John,

           

          You can place a field on the Size shelf, but that effects the size of the line at the point.  So if one point is "small" and the next point is "big", you'll see the line grow from small weight to heavy weight as it connects the points.

           

          You could get the whole line to be consistent if you added additional rows to the source data:

           

          so, instead of

           

          PointSize
          A1
          B2
          C3
          D2
          E1

           

          , which gives you a line from A to B with Size 1 growing to 2,

           

          you would use:

           

          PointSize
          A1
          B1
          B2
          C2
          C3
          D3
          D2
          E2
          E1

           

          which would give you a line from A to B with Size 1, B to B (hidden) with size 1 to 2, B to C with size 2, etc...

           

           

           

          Hope that helps!

           

          Regards,

          Joshua

            Sure -- increase the Size shelf setting in order to increase the weight of the lines by a consistent amount (assuming nothing is placed on the Size shelf currently).  If you're wanting to increase the Size of the line based on a specific measure value, you can place a measure on the Size shelf and use that to dictate the size of the line at various points.

             

            If this doesn't help, please mockup a sample TWBX and attach it here -- you can use the Superstore Sales dataset or a sample dataset of your own to drive the sample TWBX.  Cheers!
