I'm sorry, but the link you provided doesn't really help me.
Yes, I could use the quick filter as another type of workaround......
.....but the point of the question was how to use the chart as the selector.
> I want to be able to select a line in a line chart and have all the points that make up the line to be used as the filter for that Filter Action.
You can do this with "Actions". You want to define a "Highlight Action" which highlights the row(s) with the identifying fields of the selected row. You may need to add one or more identifier fields to the Level of Detail shelf
No...I still have to manually click on two points on the chart to select the whole line.
I've attached the slope graph as an example. Use the Dashboard. If you could make the suggested changes and reupload.

The "Actions..." option under the Dashboard menu opens a window that allows you to select the generated filter action(s) and edit the default settings.
The "Edit Filter Action" screen includes a section on "Target Filters", which defaults to "All Fields". Changing to "Selected Fields" and adding a filter allows you to select the source and target fields to be used.
In your dashboard for example, editing the filter action created for the "Defense" chart and amending the "Target Filters" to just use the Club field means that clicking a particular club line (or any of its points) in the "D for Defence" chart results in just that club's line showing in "W for Wins".
Is that what you were trying to achieve?
I just came across this issue and your suggestion solved it for me, so thank you Rob!
