I want to use Callout to make a label of my joining point, instead of using PlotLabels like this

  {{{2, 0}, {2, 3}}}, Joined -> True, 
  PlotLabels -> Placed["label", Above]


It is working for a point, but I can't make it work for a list of points:

  {{0, 0}, Callout[{1, 1}, "Cool label"], {2, 2}}

Can anyone help?

  • $\begingroup$ What version are you using? For version 13.0.1, your code ListPlot[ {{0, 0}, Callout[{1, 1}, "Cool label"], {2, 2}}] gives a callout for the 2nd point. $\endgroup$

One possible implementation could be:

pts = {{0, 0}, {1, 1}, {2, 2}};
lbls = {"one", "cool", "hot"};

ListPlot[Callout[First@#, Last@#] & /@ Transpose[{pts, lbls}], 
 Filling -> Axis]

enter image description here


Or try this variation:

ListPlot[Callout[First@#, Last@#, Above] & /@ Transpose[{pts, lbls}], 
 Filling -> Axis,
 Epilog -> {Red, Dashed,
