Please Retain HTML in Field Prefixes, or Add Functionality HTML Provided

 Hi All, 

This is related to another topic I have commented on - https://support.klipfolio.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115004228753-Feature-Request-Be-able-to-enlarge-text-on-the-axis-of-a-graph

My dashboards currently use HTML in the prefixes my Bar Chart Series and Y-Axis. Removing the ability to use HTML there means that I will no longer be able to control the font size of my y-axis labels and legends. 

We put these dashboards on large TV screens around the office, so being able to read labels from a distance is very important to our use case. 

I understand that there is probably a good reason to remove the ability to add any HTML to a field, but it would be nice to have to replacement for the utility it provided before it is removed.

Thank you, 

Cody

    It makes sense to expand the functionality within the Prefix/Suffix settings before retiring HTML support next month. We rely on the HTML title tag for tooltips within the suffix property, specifically with value pairs. This is an excellent work-around to provide a user specific details about a value (on mouse hover) within a dashboard without cluttering the interface with static text. Common tooltips are 'applicable taxes included', 'normalized for weather', 'values converted to equivalent kilowatt-hours' - it adds a layer of supporting info (on hover/click) similar to other components like charts.

    Post HTML prefix/suffix retirement next month, are there any options to enable a tooltip without reworking the value pairs to be HTML components?

    Since colour and font style are being added (HTML tags anyway), would it be straight forward to add a tooltip option?  

    Thanks,

    Tim
