Figuring out the coordinates for text labels etc

A lot in this lesson. Are there any best practices for generating these or is it pure mundane trial and error? Seems exceedingly tedious, albeit with effective results.

Hi @burddylan,

Could you please next time share also the corresponding mission screen link, to better understand what your question is about?

Anyway, as far as I understood, here you’re asking about text annotations put on a plot, for example to explain some particular features. The answer is: yes, it’s an exclusively trial and error approach, without any universal practices to follow, and this is exactly the reason why it’s so efficient and always case-specific.

It’s true also in the case when you want to add not one but several text annotations on the same graph. Even if after adding the first one you already have some idea about possible values of coordinates, and even if some of the annotations (or all of them) are supposed to be aligned and, hence, would have one of the coordinates in common, you still have to try several times when adding a next annotation, every time visually estimate a new possition, and only in this way select the best coordinates for each annotation.

Thanks for getting back on this Elena!

Wonder if there’s a codable solution for this… :thinking:
