Chart symbols

I understand how to increase the size of a symbol (in a chart) but there seems to be a limit of 12pt on a dot. Is there a way of increasing this size as I wish my data points to be fully inside a circle of colour not just perched on the edge?

Can you post an app or at least a screenshot to be sure we are on the right track?

Hi Brett, hopefully the attached will show up ok. As you should see the the coloured dots are not very large and so the figures are are half in half out. I would like to make these bigger or is there an alternative?

 

Many thanks

A line-chart (regardless if you choose a line or any symbols) isn't designed to display arbitrary large lines/symbols. Therefore it might be more suitable to change the chart-type to a bar-chart or maybe also some kind of a scatter-chart could be used.

Beside this you could enable the option to display the values within the segment (tab presentation in left mid) and maybe reducing the font-size of the values. Another approach could be to display the value completely above/below the points by using a second line with an expression like: rangesum(YourExpression, YourOffsetValue) and hiding this line or disabling their displaying or setting the color to argb(0,0,0,0).
