Chart Symbols won't appear unless an area is selected

I have box plots, and for each one there is a dot symbol that appears showing that specific companies performance relative to the whole range. When I have it vertical, it looks fine. But when I change the orientation to horizontal, only the box plots remain, and the dot symbols go away - unless I select an area/specific company, then the symbols appear again.

compare.pngThe top chart is fine, but I want to view it horizontally. The horizontal one doesn't show the pink dots. But when I select just one company, the dot shows up.

Any help is greatly appreciated

Hi

Please add a calculated dimension as same as your 1st dimension in the box plot chart.

If your dimension is Customer, then add calculated dimension simply '=Customer'

Hi. Thank you for the reply

However, this method did not fully work.

I tried typing in just account, then =account, then '=account'

and all do not have the intended effect

Also, the chart no longer lets me filter on an account, for example if I choose ABC's account, the chart says "Drawing of chart failed internally"

Re: Chart Symbols won't appear unless an area is selected

if vertical way is working good, then is it really required to show in horizontal way

For customer use, they want it horizontal.
