    overlapped points in X-Y scatter chart

    Hi
    I have plotted a X-Y scatter chart. Problem is in some points, the markers are overlapped on each other.
    For example Series 1 have
    X = 10, Y = 20

    And also Series 2 have
    X = 10, Y = 20

    As a result the square and rectangle are overlapped. Is there any way to seperate them a few?

    Wouldn't moving them defeat the purpose of an XY scatter chart? Are you better to change the symbols from solid filled to outline with no fill and maybe make one series larger than the other so you can see both. Maybe an open (unfilled) circle larger than the default setting and the other series a smaller symbol that could be seen inside the larger circle.

    Thanks. "No fill" is a handy solution.
