  1. Make tooltip text selectable + suitable html generator for html tooltips + continue to show tooltip until tooltip-are-mouse-leave event

    As for me tooltip functionality is quite restrictive and not very convenient for now (5.0.14).
    1. I cannot select text on tooltip.
    I found some examples where we just copy original tooltip, show it and then do e.preventPropagation for mouseDown, mouseup and mousemove events on tooltip area.
    but maybe it can be done by some parameters?

    2. Suitable html generator for html tooltip - it is inconvenient to generate html with concatenation of string na respective params. And hard to apply event listeners on elements of html-tooltip. Maybe some helper functions to add?

    3. continue to show tooltip until tooltip-are-mouse-leave…

          Hi, this feature is prevented in two places, because there were problems with text being selected when trying to zoom in. See https://github.com/highcharts/highcharts/issues/3224.

          If you want to enable text selection, there are two lines where the event handling is prevented. If you comment out both these lines, your users can select text:

          - https://github.com/highcharts/highcharts/blob/v5.0.14/js/parts/Pointer.js#L756
          - https://github.com/highcharts/highcharts/blob/v5.0.14/js/parts/Pointer.js#L813

        • Position tick labels between ticks on a date-time x-axis

          In a chart with data plotted on and datetime x-axia i would like to position tick labels between ticks rather than on ticks. An when i zoom they still appear in the center to the right of it's tick.

          for example i have a tick on August 1st and another on September 1st and my date formate is MMM. I would like to see 'Aug' centered between the August 1st tick and the September 1st tick

            This would definately be a nice feature. I believe we would need two types of label placement on datetime axes. Interval labels would be placed between ticks. For example a month name. But if the interval spans two months, like August-September, the label would have to be placed on the 1st of August.

            • Create some form of tree / node linking chart

              Highcharts doesn't currently appear to have any tree / node linking chart types. A few examples would be:

              - Dendograms: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dendrogram
              - Hierarchical clustering: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hierarchical_clustering
              - Minimum Spanning Tree: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minimum_spanning_tree

              The above chart types vary in their purpose and how they are constructed. But this request is simply to have some form of tree / node linking chart capabilities in highcharts.

              Once it becomes possible to chart a basic tree or hierarchy structure, it may be easier to extend functionality to create further chart types along the same thinking.

              Plot.ly currently offers both dendrogram's and tree plots within their python…

              • Replace rectangle zoom with mouse panning and zooming

                Panning and Zooming like in Google Maps is way nicer to use than the current implementation of rectangle zoom. Would be great to have such feature :)

                • chord diagram

                  A chord diagram or an extended diagram is basically used to show data flow between multiple entities. We can have a circular chord diagram or an extended one.
                  Currently we are achieving it through d3.js, but that requires lot of complex coding

                    • 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.

                        • Allow clickable tooltips

                          It would be good if you could hover a point on the graph and then click on the tooltip that appears so that you could redirect the user to a relevant page (e.g. a news article).

                                      • multi dimensional column charts

                                        Recently I came across the requirement of implementing a column chart with individual widths of each column. This allows us to express two informations within one bar, I know pretty well about the discussions of "is this still readable" bit to advanced controllers it is.

                                        I think it would be a great feature to include this second dimension to bar and column charts in order to create so called "multi dimensional bar charts".

                                        Thanx for checking this feature request,
                                        Flo!

                                        • useUTC as a configuration per chart

                                          I have an application that uses UTC in some graphs and non UTC time in other. It would be great to have is as a configuration.
