Plot won't save and scale of points is wrong

I am attempting to plot a chart

I get the following errors when I try to save the plot:

Any advice is much appreciated!

Thanks for reporting!

Right now, Plotly requires that all column names have unique names. When you rename a column in Plotly, we’ll check if the column name already exists in the current session of the app and prevent you from duplicating:

But there are ways to get around that. If you have already saved the dataset and then you rename a new or different column with an already existing name, then you’ll run into this error. Here’s a screenshot:

We’re working on a fix to prevent this from happening and we’ll let you know when it lands. In the meantime, watch out when you’re renaming columns to names that might have already been saved.

Thanks again for reporting!
