    highlight points on a scatter plot?

    Carla Intal

      I think there is a simple solution to this that I can't get to, but I'd like to know how I can highlight a selected country X like so on the chart below?

       

      I can't drag the country dimension to 'color' because that will make my chart color all the countries in the graph.  When I only need one and the rest of the world all grayed/blued out.

          Hi Carla,

           

          Unfortunately, I can't open your workbook (we aren't on 10.3 yet.)

           

          Try putting this on a dashboard. Create another sheet and just drag country to rows. Put that sheet on the dashboard next to your plot.

           

          Go to dashboard>add action>highlight

           

          In the top portion, select only the box next to your plot

           

          In the bottom portion, select only the box next to your second sheet

           

          Hit 'Ok' and try clicking on one of your countries.

           

          Alternatively, we could do this with a parameter (select a country from a dropdown to highlight) but I think this is slicker/more intuitive.
