      • Allow navigator to have multiple data series

        Please allow navigator to hold multiple data series. I had a request recently to convert a very large data set into separate categories, so that they could be deselected via the legend, but now I don't get the set represented in the navigator window, because it only will hold one series. And with large data, building one composite set will be too much overhead.

        • implement dynamic font size

          Currently the highcharts have fixed font size, in the javascript many references are found to hard-coded font-sizes of e.g. 9px and 11px. Instead I would prefer that Highcharts use relative font-size (and paddings etc.) like 1em or 0.8em based on the font-size of the container. This would allow to print large-scale graphs on high-resolutions screens and small graphs on tablets.

            It is already partly implemented, but in many places the positioning of the text is not considering the actual font size.

            See http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/ZTmyL/.

            For example, the baseline of the title is fixed, but the subtitle is respecting the actual font size. The axis labels are placed by a fixed base line, not by the rendered font size.

            Edit 2014-05-13:
            I’ve fixed these cases for tite, subtitle, axis labels, legend and tooltip now. See http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/rcncL/.

            Edit 2015-03-16:
            In exported charts, the SVG is taken out of the container, so the font size needs to be set on the SVG itself: http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/r8w2etgp/.

          • multiple axis alignment control

            There seems to be a lot of posts in the forum asking how to align the 0 values of multiple y axes.

            My thoughts for implementing this:
            Chart level option (like alignTicks): alignBaseline: boolean (default: true)
            Axis level option: baseline:(numeric) (default: 0)

            By default 0 is the baseline for each axis, and by default the 0 value for each axis is aligned.
            The user can set the baseline to any other set of numbers that should be aligned, or turn off alignment.

            • Stacked area (spline etc) in irregular datetime series

              When you create more datetime irregular series, by now only the same datetime values are used to create the stack, resulting in a correct-but-ugly graph.

                  • toggle legend box

                    if you can add a button which allows user to toggle the legend the it will be great, because as of now if you are displaying the legend on chart area then some part of chart points get hidden because of legend, and user just cant see them because legend box is on top of the chart points.

                    I even tried to do a normal toggle action with help of jquery but there are some issues when we do it. e.g. if we hide the legend and then add some series dynamically to chart then series gets added properly but…

                    • Venn Diagram

                      A Venn Diagram chart would be excellent. Nice and simple like the Google Charts API Venn, but with the usual HighCharts polish , tooltips, legends etc.

                      3 way would be great to start, 4 way even cooler ;-)

                          • grouped x-axis

                            Like Excel does when you use 2 columns for the labels.See example on http://minus.com/mHNwVqDZO.

                            Each item on the category axis falls in a group. The groups are displayed below the axis items. Each group name is displayed only once (centered below all its items). Groups are devided by longer tickmarks.
                            Each group can contain a different number of items.
                            Possible uses:
                            * display structured categories like product and product group or country and region
                            * display two or more groups side by side, like gross sales and net sales, or this year and last year.

                                • Add Navigation bar for Y-Axis in Highstock

                                  My suggestion for a very helpful feature would be to add a vertical navigation bar for the Y-Axis, similar to the navigation bar that exists for the X-Axis, for Highcharts. Would lead to a highly interactive plot, especially suitable for project using scatter-plots

                                      Click and drag points on line charts and a correspoinding PointModified event so backend data can be updated.
                                      This will allow features to be built so users can modify data using the chart itself.

                                      • Add "ondblclick"-Option - e.g. for Exporting-Module

                                        What I want to do:
                                        exportButton.onclick = show Menu
                                        exportButton.ondblclick = direct export

                                        This should actually be possible using jQuery, but I dislike adding Code beside the Highcharts-Object.

                                        • data module for database tables

                                          data module was a great addition. have been using that pretty much everytime i can covert my data to csv.

                                          but having database module to load data from one table would be just awesome.
