I have a scatter chart with 4 quadrants. Each quadrant has an annotation signaling what the given scatter area indicates. However, if I want to select a point behind the text box of the annotation I wont be able to because instead of filtering to the selected data point it selects the text box of the annotation. Here is an image attached of what happens:
As you see there are red data point behind that text box, any time I tried to select one of those data points it would do what the image is doing rather than filtering to the selected data point. Is there any way I could prevent that from happening and or layer the text behind the data point. Moreover, you can select a data point by dragging the mouse cursor (essentially a lasso box) over data points but I would like to be able to select data point just by clicking and not dragging a text box over selected data points.
I am aware you could possibly use a legend but that is something I would not want to use.
Yes, annotation will add in front layer. Better try with your text as image and add it in dashboard. Now we can get some extract transparent functionality in tableau dashboard.
