Reference lines over lap with values on data points

Hi, I'm new to Qlikview.  The reference lines in attached chart are overlapping with the values to make the numbers hard to read.  What's the best way to fix this?  I tried Plot Values inside Segments, it had the same problem.  Text on Axis doesn't look pretty.  Suggestions?  Thanks in advance!

Use the argb function with as first parameter the alpha value for transparency. R,g and b are the other parameters for the function. Alpha 0 is 100% transparent, 255 is 100% opaque.

Hi.

You could also show the values on axis.

Or use some alternative to reference lines.

For example you could divide your bars into three colorized segments (green, yellow, red).
