Adding Special Icons within the Chart Area

Hello Community.

I was wondering if it was possible to add the Special Icons from the Caption tab in in Chart properties within the chart area. I have my Captions disabled and want to still utilize the 'Copy Image to Clipboard' option for end users. 

I know that within the General Tab it is possible to add the Fast Change icons inside the chart area, but wondering if the same can be done for Special Icons. 

One workaround I tried was to modify the Caption background color and changed borders colors to transparent to try and clear the bottom border for the caption but the issue I was facing was that you would have to disable borders all together and I do need to have borders around my charts.

Any ideas from anyone that has run into this issue and found a workaround would be great. 

Thanks in advance team.

Re: Adding Special Icons within the Chart Area

I believe the only option is going to be the right-click menu in that case.  I poked around in the Help etc., and I have not been able to find any other alternatives.  The only other thing of which I can think would require digging into the Ajax client js code etc. to find the Copy Image stuff and then try to modify something to have that appear in web page etc., probably not something you want to undertake here, so the best of which I can think is a text object that lets the users know to use right-click menu to access the Copy Image that way.  The other only other option would be the one you were digging into, show the caption but make it transparent etc.  Sorry I do not have better news for you.
