Re: Cfx98: Bug in displaying stacked series? (...plus one more bug?)

Software FX

Recommended Posts


We are aware of the different visual effect that there is between

'Z-cluster=true' and 'Z-cluster=false', however, the values of the points do

not change. The explanation why it was designed like this ovey to the order

the bars are plotered in the chart. In resume, the chart is correct in both

ways even though the order of the stacked serie is inverted.

About the problem two, Tooltips, is a wared problem and we will resolve for

the next service pack.
