## Help text in chart when show caption is not checked

Hi

I have made a line chart and I want to write a help text to the users.

I have chosen to not activate "show caption", because I don't think is gives a nice appearance.

I want to be able to write a help text for the users, because I have made a reference line i the chart, that I want to explain.

But the help text doesn't appear - I guess it is because I have turnet "show caption" off?

Is there any other way I can make a help text with "show caption" inactive?

Kind Regards

Maria
