Make a data point stand out consistantly

Hi chaps.  I am creating an industry structure review.  Using world bank data, I have multiple sheets to show global countries relative position.  I want to be able to have, say Kenya, standout in all sheets (perhaps as a different colour or size?).  Is this possible, if so how.  So to make this real with a concrete example.  In one sheet I have a scatter plot on the top and a bar chart on the bottom.  The scatter shows country GDP vs country population.  The bar chart shows per capita GDP.  How can I locate Kenya in both in such a way that I can see it in comparison to its data set (so I am acknowledging that I can select Kenya on its own, but then I lose all the other countries comparison)?  I ideally want this selection to continue into the next sheet which has different country attributes, but within which I still want to see Kenya's comparative position.  Can you give me any guidance as to how to do this?

Re: Make a data point stand out consistantly

Do you want a specific hard coded country (Kenya) always emphasized, or do you want the selected countries emphasized?

Re: Make a data point stand out consistantly

Hi Rob. I want to be able to select a single country that and then change to another, and later to another (thanks very much for your quick response).  So the idea is ah this is what Kenya looks like, I wonder what this is in compersion to South Aftica, select SA, then perhaps compare with Egypt ... etc etc

Re: Make a data point stand out consistantly

If you want to select two sets to compare, it's possible with Qlik Sense using data islands, easier with QlikView Alternate States.  There is an alternate states extension available although I'm not sure of it's current status.  As an alternative consider "graying" the unselected data as shown in this blog post:
