Interacting with Bubbles in Bubble Chart Pro™

Double-clicking on a bubble in the Bubble Chart Display form opens the corresponding project in the project form for editing. Any changes that you save in the project form are immediately updated in the bubble chart.

1. Double-clicking on the Project Sagittarius bubble opened the project.

2. Clicking on the Pattern drop-down menu let's you select a different pattern.

3. Clicking [Save] displays the modified bubble in the chart.

Right mouse button clicking on a bubble displays the name, X, Y, and Bubble size ("Z") values for that bubble:

You can also move bubbles by "dragging and dropping" them in the chart area. Value scores are recalculated (if necessary), and Project data is automatically updated and saved to correspond with the new bubble location.

1. Click on a bubble and hold down the mouse to select the bubble. A red frame will be drawn around the bubble, and the selected bubble will be brought to the front.

2. Drag the selected bubble by clicking on it. Releasing the mouse drops the bubble and the chart and project data are updated to reflect the new bubble location. A moved bubble can be restored to its original position by selecting the "Undo" menu item from the "Edit" or selecting the control-z (Windows) or command-z (Mac) immediately after moving the bubble. This move cannot be reversed and the command becomes unavailable after any other form action is performed.
