Functions included in this update provide enhamcements on existing ones. Combining nudging with stack, jitter and dodge positions was not possible within the grammar of graphics as implemented in package ‘ggplot2’. This made it difficult to add data labels to some types of plots. Which for example, can be important in plots aimed at audiences outside academia. These functions are based, with permission, on code written by M. Krassowski in the GitHub repository for ‘ggrepel’.
Other new position functions with names ending in
_keep, for which normal counterparts exist, keep the original position in data, allowing the drawing of connecting segments with the geometries from package ‘ggrepel’ and with the updated geometries in ‘ggpp’.
