Hover compare data, date is covered by legend names

I create charts with many traces, at time the legend names cover half of the x axis time/date format.
Can the date/time be changed to move left, instead of being centered then both will be seen.
This is useful in charts with many subplots as the date/time axis is only on the bottom subplot, and the hover value for x becomes important.

Sample_hoverCompare

Hum, what happens is not very clear… could you please share a reproducible example (with dummy data) so that we can reproduce the issue? In the picture I don’t understand what is hover, legend or axis label.

Thanks Emmanuelle,

Hope this is works for you.
