How to disable visual from being selected but show tooltip when hover?


Hello, I have a table and 3 chart visuals.

When user clicks on table cell or charts, the other visuals get filtered/highlighted. I know this can be disabled using the edit interactions setting.

However, I am trying to prevent users from being able to click on 2 charts, but allowing users to hover over the 2 charts to show tooltips. Is there any setting to achieve this without applying a shape overlay b/c this will not allow tooltips to show up ?

Note: that I still want the user to be able to mouse over and see the tooltip. Thank you very much.
