  1. 3D data on 2D scatter plot with smooth color

    Drawing a 3D dataset (x,y,z) on 2D scatter plot.

    The 3rd dimension (z) is presented as color on scatter plot. A color axis is used to guide user for the color.

    An sample is posted at: http://forum.highcharts.com/highcharts-usage/how-to-plot-3d-data-on-2d-scatter-plot-with-smooth-color-t31107/

  2. Add the option to label lines directly

    A legend need not to be in a small box tucked into the corner of the chart. Direct labeling allows a reader to identify the lines quickly and focus on comparing and contrasting the patterns.

    TIP: read the book 'The Wall Street Journal - Guide to Information Graphics' by Dona M. Wong. Has an interesting point on 3D charts!

  3. Add ability to export charts with HTML formatted text.

    We can place html formatted on the chart. But on export the ability is lost. In this example I have tried to use the subtitle for export, but HTML is lost there to and so it goes from a nice formatted paragraph with list items to a one line text on export.

  5. Button to Save Image or PDF on Server Side

    Feature to save Image/PDF on Server Side (like the feature to save it on client side). This would ease in building email functionality. If highcharts can save the generated pdf on a server by means of a button click, we can write an email client to pick that up and send as an attachment. Using phantom and options.js on server side isn't optimal sometimes.

  8. render the dataClasses legend like the gradient legend

    Check out the legend on they NYFed site

    https://www.newyorkfed.org/data-and-statistics/data-visualization/community-credit-profiles#inclusion

    The dataClasses are joined together and the arrow pointer points to where in the data class a specific point lives.

    I have implemented similar code but it would be nice if it was an option by default.

  9. Hit-test point in map

    For Highmaps, we should have a method to find which map area a point lays within. Useful for building heatmaps.

  11. Provide the option to let piecharts show the larger segments on top

    Reading a pie chart is like reading a clock. It's most effective to place the largest segment at 12 o'clock (as it does now). The best way to order the rest of the segments is to place the second biggest slice at 12 o'clock on the left; the rest would follow counterclockwise.

  13. Show value on top of plotline or allow multiple labels on a plotline

    Plotlines are excellent to point out interesting Things in the chart. With large datasets it can be a good thing to be able to have an additional label for the exact value of that plotline

  14. Target for column and bar chart

    Bullet chart has the option to pass a target value to the data (https://api.highcharts.com/highcharts/series.bullet.data.target). This is not possible for column or bar.

  15. Draw border for bar so that it doesn't increase width of bar

    When a border is added to bar/column charts, the border goes X pixels around the bar. This causes the bar to overlap over the axis lines and possibly other bars. See this JSFiddle example:
    http://jsfiddle.net/aaewong/6kmu11md/5/

    It would be nice if it could look more like this instead:

  16. Add Philippines' Provinces' Cities and Municipalities

    I have tested your drill down map in yur USA example.
    But I tried to replace all "us/us" to "ph/ph" in order to use it in my beloved country, but it looks like I cannot drill it even at least to provincial level.

    I wish you will provide data for that

  17. Size height of bar graph based on contents when containing DIV has no min height

    Have a simple 3 bar graph. The containing DIV has no height defined Graph ends up rather tall with THICK bars. Ugly. If I try to control the bars by setting the plotOptions.groupPadding to .1 and pointPadding to 0 and the series I set pointWidth to 20, end up with lots of white space but graph is STILL taller than it needs to be.

  19. Add support for relative (lowercase) SVG operators in path

    This would allow SVG paths to be shorter in many cases, which would reduce data size, and make the page load faster.

    For example, SVG path for a rectangle could be
    "M400 400h32v28h-32Z"
    instead of
    "M400 400L432 400 432 428 400 428Z"
    See http://forum.highcharts.com/highmaps-usage-f14/use-of-relative-commands-in-svg-paths-for-map-t31720/

  20. Ability to put a marker on Gauges

    It would be great if we can add an extra UI (any UI shape , triangle or arrow shape) on Angular or Solid gauge chart to indicate extra value(probably a target value or goal value) other than the current value.

    I know I can put a label anywhere (with x,y pixel values) but this is not dependant on the location of the value on graph. It would be awesome if I can put "marker" (one or more?) with a series data value to insert a shape or something similar.
