When in a multiple line graph two or more measures have (approximately) the same values at a certain category value the lines come close to each other at that point. When hovering over the data point not one but two data tip value boxes pop up, but the information in both is identical. Seems quite redundant to me. How can I bring this down to only one data tip value box.

 

See the screenshot below:

Total Sales Middle and Calculated Item 1 have the exact same value at Weeknumber 1. I do understand why a double data tip value box pops up: I'm hovering over two lines. But the two boxes are exactly identical. That's why I want only one.

To follow up on this, I have relayed this thread to the dev team and they will explore changing the behavior when multiple lines have identical data tips.

 

Thanks,

Hello,

Unfortunately I don't think there is a way you could hide one data tip and keep the other.

 

In many circumstances where we have overlapping lines (if you have a Group variable assigned, for example), the data tips would not be identical.
