Feature update: Collapse the selection list in chart views!

A small, but most marvelous, enhancement has been released to Data Planet. Have you noticed?

When you select multiple items to display in a chart, each selection appears in a check list above the chart, as in this example from the Census Bureau Household Income Reports dataset showing shares of household income of each quintile of households:



It’s helpful to be able to clearly see what you’ve selected, but it can make the chart unwieldy to view on your screen. We now have an option to streamline the view! Notice the arrowhead icon in the center of the space above the chart:


Click on it, and oh happy days, the check list collapses and a tidy view of the chart and legend is presented:

Easily toggle back and forth when it's useful.
