Does plotly marker shape affect performance?


I have a large dataset (500k rows) that I’m plotting using a scatter plot.
It seems that marker_symbol=‘square’ has significant performance boost on the default circle, which causes the page interaction to lag.

Is anyone else encountering this?

Hi @yuriq I never have noticed that, but I rarely have so many data points.

You might look into scattergl traces if running into performance issues.
