Hi, does anyone know how to add in vertical reference line(s) to a Variability/Gauge Chart?  To clarify, I don't mean the optional CustomStreamSeg vertical line red separators for each grouping which are controlled via a Dispatch.

For example:

Variability Chart(

    Y(:Data),

    X(:State, :Fruit, :Time),

    .....

    );

I want to add in some x-axis vertical reference lines by Time for the State and Fruit groupings.  thoughts?  thx, dj

The axis there is categorical and doesn't have a reference line feature, but you can tap in to the underlying numeric scale and add a custom script to draw vertical lines. Right-click on graph > Customize > Add button. Here's an example with two red reference lines. You can use the "Text()" function to draw text inside the graph or add an Annotation over the axis.

I t would be great to have such features added to add reference lines without having to write a script.  I suspect many users (like me) just don't have the aptitude/time to learn/interest, etc. for writing scripts.

Agreed. We are already working to improve our categorical axes in general features like reference lines, though Variability is one of the more complex case.
