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 ;-)
Venn diagrams are planned for Highcharts 6.
do you have a date for highcharts 6 release
Happy to hear that this feature is in planning! Hopefully it will support five dimensions (elliptical shape) or even six (triangles) if possible :)
However, most important is possibility to rename the different data sets with descriptive names, like "Diabetes" and "Cancer" instead of just "A" and "B" or "list 1" and "list 2". Without legends, it's very difficult to intepret the figures in the Venn diagram.
I haven't used the Google charts API Venn so not sure if it's a standard feature, but it's useful to be able to see and copy the values of each section, not only tool tip.

Looking for a great way to show prevalence data based on a checkbox list control so Venn diagram support of 2, 3, 4, and even 5 dimensions (@kzoon awesome looking chart) with full Highcharts style would be incredible. Option to do static or dynamic sizing of intersections and with data labels inside if area large enough or whisker (like in Pie) with the number outside if not, etc. is the hard part - this guy got close with placement and 3 dimensions but no support for legends, datalabels, etc: https://github.com/AudienseCo/highcharts-venn
Yep, was looking for a library, had used HighCharts before and it was the first choice but then we found out it does not support Venn diagrams, so we moved on. 3 way overlap required.
You can even have 5 dimensions: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Symmetrical_5-set_Venn_diagram.svg
But I will settle for 2, 3 and 4 :-)
A two circle overlap with proper relative proportions would be extremely useful. The manual fiddling hacks do not resize properly, and resizing is critical.
This appears to be a god option if Highcharts doesn't add Venn Diagram functionality . . .
While this approach is not exactly convenient, it can be done with a scatter series...
Not ideal, as it requires a bit of manual fiddling with positioning...but...

Not directly necessary, but would be a nice addition to have Area-proportional Venn Diagrams.
The University of Kent has got a paper about it: http://www.cs.kent.ac.uk/pubs/2010/2989/index.html
I agree, we are still using google charts because of this feature.
This is desperately needed. The only thing preventing us from switching completely over to HighCharts is the lack of Venn support. Even a simple two circle overlap chart would be enough to justify the decision.
