Nudge points.

Usage

position_nudge(x = 0, y = 0)

Arguments

x, y
Amount of vertical and horizontal distance to move.

Description

This is useful if you want to nudge labels a little ways from their points.

Examples

df <- data.frame( x = c(1,3,2,5), y = c("a","c","d","c") ) ggplot(df, aes(x, y)) + geom_point() + geom_text(aes(label = y))

ggplot(df, aes(x, y)) + geom_point() + geom_text(aes(label = y), position = position_nudge(y = -0.1))
