I am learning how to create plotly figures using the ggplotly route. I was pleased to see how easily I could generate an interactive plot from my previously created ggplot figure. However, after that very expeditious experience I’ve been slowed to crawl as I try to tweak the resulting plotly figure.
As you can hopefully see in the attached image, the hover that comes up obscures the points behind it. is there a way to set the alpha of the hover box to either match that of the points it references, or to a constant value?
G = ggplot(T, aes(x=fct_reorder(Tea, median_rating, median), y=Rating, color=Brand, fill=Brand, text = paste( "Tea: ", Tea, "\n", "Brand: ", Brand, "\n", "Tea Median Score: ", median_rating, "\n", "Score: ", Rating, "\n", sep = "") ) ) + geom_point(size=2.5, shape=21, alpha=0.3) + scale_color_brewer(palette="Set1", direction = 1) + scale_fill_brewer(palette="Set1", direction = 1) + coord_flip() + labs(x="Tea", y="Rating") + ggtitle('Herbal Tea Ratings') + theme_minimal() + theme( plot.title = element_text(hjust = 0.5), plot.subtitle = element_text(hjust = 0.5) ) #set up margins m <- list( l = 50, r = 50, b = 50, t = 100, pad = 4 ) P = plotly::ggplotly(G, tooltip = "text") config(P, displaylogo = FALSE) %>% layout(responsive=TRUE, margin = m)
