Combo Chart with 2 Dimensions - symbols not being placed correctly
We have a requirement to present a combo chart with 2 metrics as bars (stacked) and 1 metric as a symbol against 2 dimensions. The bars are stacking perfectly but the symbols are not being plotted in the right location for the second dimension. Please see attached example, if you flip to a straight table, or indeed hover over each symbol you can see that the data is indeed matched correctly just that the symbol is not apearing in the correct place…any suggestions or fixes for this would be greatly appreciated?
Agreed, indeed we have already done this and it works ok for sure, though not precisely what the customer asked for. I wanted to confirm that i am not missing anything obvious and hopefully receive some feedback from QlikTech re. whether this is a bug in the combo chart rendering that can perhaps be fixed in a future version.
It does look like a bug to me, related to having two dimensions. That suggests another workaround, which is to use a single concatenated dimension:
=Dim1 & ' ' & Dim2
It works. Not as readable as just using two dimensions, but at least the data shows up in the right spot. It's at least an alternative to using a trellis chart. I think the trellis is more clear, but may make it more difficult to make certain kinds of observations.
