    I am wondering how the position of the individual bubbles is calculated? I am trying to create a bubble chart where I need to assign each bubble to a particluar spot on the chart, but it looks like the IPU chart software does this on its own.

    Is it possible to assign x- and y values to position each bubble on the chart?

    Yes, IPU-Chart calculates size and position of the bubbles. It uses a layout manager of D3 for this (and I'am happy that D3 does this tedious work for us!). So you can't assign the x/y position yourself.

    The position of a bubble is determined by a sort algorithm (see https://www.ipublia.com/support/docs/ipu-chart-for-wordpress-user-guide/usage-examples/#usageBubble).

    In the new version to come about mid of august it will be possible to overwrite this sorting function.
