Using MM13.1 on Windows

How can I use callout together with NominalScale? I would have thought this could work but it doesn't.

  ListPlot[{{0, "Heads"}, Callout[{1, "Tails"}, "Label"], {2, "Tails"}},
  ScalingFunctions -> NominalScale[{"Heads", "Tails"}]]

enter image description here

ListPlot[{{0, 2}, Callout[{1, 1}, "Label"], {2, 1}}]

    $\begingroup$ It looks like an unimplemented functionality (formally a bug). Worth reporting to the support. $\endgroup$ Jul 9, 2022 at 16:32

A workaround


(* "13.1.0 for Mac OS X x86 (64-bit) (June 16, 2022)" *)


data = {{0, "Heads"}, Callout[{1, "Tails"}, "Label"], {2, "Tails"}};

 data /. {"Heads" -> 2, "Tails" -> 1},
 Ticks -> {Automatic,
   {{1, "Tails"}, {2, "Heads"}}}]

enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the workaround I was hoping to not needed to go there. Anyway I'll report the "bug" to Wolfram $\endgroup$
