Sccater chart: Bring a selected point to the front

Hello,

I am building a report with a scatter graph in which I want to highlight a selected point. I already found out how to change the color of a selected point but as there are so many observations it is still not always visible (here is how I did it: Scatter Charts In Power BI - Highlighting Key Points - Enterprise DNA). Is there a way to bring a selected point to the front so that it is always visible?
Here is my graph so far with a black selected point:

Hi @daniel_escobar_ ,

 

Unfortunately, there is no method yet to meet this requirement.

You can adjust the zoom slider to distinguish the selected points from other points, but obviously this will reduce the scope of the entire scatter plot and does not solve the problem for completely overlapping points.

 

Some other users have come up with ideas for scatter charts that would help solve the problem, and you can vote for these ideas.
