Hello RStudio community,
It is the first time I post a question so sorry in advance for any mistakes I migth make.
I am working in a Rmarkdown document in which I am trying to use crosstalk to create a ggplot2 graph with two series each displaying data coming from different shareddata object. The idea is to compare graphically the data of two datasets that contain a X and Y variables (to be plotted) and some other classification variables whose value will be selected through the filter_select function of crosstalk.
Here is a reprex with the mcars dataset. While I manage to get it to work when the two series are plotted in different graphs (Alternative 1), I do not manage to combine them succesfully into a single graph (Alternative 2). When I do that, the second serie seem to overwrite the first one and the behaviour of the filters is not the one I would expect. Initially all data is displayed but selecting a value on the filter1 make it dissapear and after that only filter2 seems to do something on the graph.
Am I not understanding the behaviour of the sharedata objects correctly? Is it not possible to combine two series on the same plot when using filters? Thank you for your help.
