          Type: string

          HTML font family - the typeface that will be applied by the web browser. The web browser will only be able to apply a font if it is available on the system which it operates. Provide multiple font families, separated by commas, to indicate the preference in which to apply fonts if they aren't available on the system. The Chart Studio Cloud (at https://chart-studio.plotly.com or on-premise) generates images on a server, where only a select number of fonts are installed and supported. These include "Arial", "Balto", "Courier New", "Droid Sans",, "Droid Serif", "Droid Sans Mono", "Gravitas One", "Old Standard TT", "Open Sans", "Overpass", "PT Sans Narrow", "Raleway", "Times New Roman".

Supported values for rectangles, circles and paths are "top left", "top center", "top right", "middle left", "middle center", "middle right", "bottom left", "bottom center", and "bottom right". Supported values for lines are "start", "middle", and "end". Default: "middle center" for rectangles, circles, and paths; "middle" for lines.

      • texttemplate
        Parent: layout.shapes[].label
        Type: string
        Default: ""

        Template string used for rendering the shape's label. Note that this will override `text`. Variables are inserted using %{variable}, for example "x0: %{x0}". Numbers are formatted using d3-format's syntax %{variable:d3-format}, for example "Price: %{x0:$.2f}". See https://github.com/d3/d3-format/tree/v1.4.5#d3-format for details on the formatting syntax. Dates are formatted using d3-time-format's syntax %{variable|d3-time-format}, for example "Day: %{x0|%m %b %Y}". See https://github.com/d3/d3-time-format/tree/v2.2.3#locale_format for details on the date formatting syntax. A single multiplication or division operation may be applied to numeric variables, and combined with d3 number formatting, for example "Length in cm: %{x0"2.54}", "%{slope"60:.1f} meters per second." For log axes, variable values are given in log units. For date axes, x/y coordinate variables and center variables use datetimes, while all other variable values use values in ms. Finally, the template string has access to variables `x0`, `x1`, `y0`, `y1`, `slope`, `dx`, `dy`, `width`, `height`, `length`, `xcenter` and `ycenter`.

      • xanchor
        Parent: layout.shapes[].label
        Type: enumerated , one of ( "auto" | "left" | "center" | "right" )
        Default: "auto"

        Sets the label's horizontal position anchor This anchor binds the specified `textposition` to the "left", "center" or "right" of the label text. For example, if `textposition` is set to "top right" and `xanchor` to "right" then the right-most portion of the label text lines up with the right-most edge of the shape.

      • yanchor
        Parent: layout.shapes[].label
        Type: enumerated , one of ( "top" | "middle" | "bottom" )

        Sets the label's vertical position anchor This anchor binds the specified `textposition` to the "top", "middle" or "bottom" of the label text. For example, if `textposition` is set to "top right" and `yanchor` to "top" then the top-most portion of the label text lines up with the top-most edge of the shape.

    • layer
      Parent: layout.shapes[]
      Type: enumerated , one of ( "below" | "above" | "between" )
      Default: "above"

    • legendgroup
      Parent: layout.shapes[]
      Type: string
      Default: ""

      Sets the legend group for this shape. Traces and shapes part of the same legend group hide/show at the same time when toggling legend items.

    • legendgrouptitle

    • legendrank
      Parent: layout.shapes[]
      Type: number
      Default: 1000

      Sets the legend rank for this shape. Items and groups with smaller ranks are presented on top/left side while with "reversed" `legend.traceorder` they are on bottom/right side. The default legendrank is 1000, so that you can use ranks less than 1000 to place certain items before all unranked items, and ranks greater than 1000 to go after all unranked items. When having unranked or equal rank items shapes would be displayed after traces i.e. according to their order in data and layout.

      • width
        Parent: layout.shapes[].line
        Type: number greater than or equal to 0
        Default: 2

        Sets the line width (in px).

    • name
      Parent: layout.shapes[]
      Type: string

      When used in a template, named items are created in the output figure in addition to any items the figure already has in this array. You can modify these items in the output figure by making your own item with `templateitemname` matching this `name` alongside your modifications (including `visible: False` or `enabled: False` to hide it). Has no effect outside of a template.

    • opacity
      Parent: layout.shapes[]
      Type: number between or equal to 0 and 1
      Default: 1

      Sets the opacity of the shape.

    • path
      Parent: layout.shapes[]
      Type: string

      For `type` "path" - a valid SVG path with the pixel values replaced by data values in `xsizemode`/`ysizemode` being "scaled" and taken unmodified as pixels relative to `xanchor` and `yanchor` in case of "pixel" size mode. There are a few restrictions / quirks only absolute instructions, not relative. So the allowed segments are: M, L, H, V, Q, C, T, S, and Z arcs (A) are not allowed because radius rx and ry are relative. In the future we could consider supporting relative commands, but we would have to decide on how to handle date and log axes. Note that even as is, Q and C Bezier paths that are smooth on linear axes may not be smooth on log, and vice versa. no chained "polybezier" commands - specify the segment type for each one. On category axes, values are numbers scaled to the serial numbers of categories because using the categories themselves there would be no way to describe fractional positions On data axes: because space and T are both normal components of path strings, we can't use either to separate date from time parts. Therefore we'll use underscore for this purpose: 2015-02-21_13:45:56.789

    • showlegend
      Parent: layout.shapes[]
      Type: boolean

      Determines whether or not this shape is shown in the legend.

    • templateitemname
      Parent: layout.shapes[]
      Type: string

      Used to refer to a named item in this array in the template. Named items from the template will be created even without a matching item in the input figure, but you can modify one by making an item with `templateitemname` matching its `name`, alongside your modifications (including `visible: False` or `enabled: False` to hide it). If there is no template or no matching item, this item will be hidden unless you explicitly show it with `visible: True`.

    • type
      Parent: layout.shapes[]
      Type: enumerated , one of ( "circle" | "rect" | "path" | "line" )

      Specifies the shape type to be drawn. If "line", a line is drawn from (`x0`,`y0`) to (`x1`,`y1`) with respect to the axes' sizing mode. If "circle", a circle is drawn from ((`x0`+`x1`)/2, (`y0`+`y1`)/2)) with radius (|(`x0`+`x1`)/2 - `x0`|, |(`y0`+`y1`)/2 -`y0`)|) with respect to the axes' sizing mode. If "rect", a rectangle is drawn linking (`x0`,`y0`), (`x1`,`y0`), (`x1`,`y1`), (`x0`,`y1`), (`x0`,`y0`) with respect to the axes' sizing mode. If "path", draw a custom SVG path using `path`. with respect to the axes' sizing mode.

    • visible
      Parent: layout.shapes[]
      Type: enumerated , one of ( True | False | "legendonly" )
      Default: True

      Determines whether or not this shape is visible. If "legendonly", the shape is not drawn, but can appear as a legend item (provided that the legend itself is visible).

    • x0
      Parent: layout.shapes[]
      Type: number or categorical coordinate string

      Sets the shape's starting x position. See `type` and `xsizemode` for more info.

    • x1
      Parent: layout.shapes[]
      Type: number or categorical coordinate string

      Sets the shape's end x position. See `type` and `xsizemode` for more info.

    • xanchor
      Parent: layout.shapes[]
      Type: number or categorical coordinate string

      Only relevant in conjunction with `xsizemode` set to "pixel". Specifies the anchor point on the x axis to which `x0`, `x1` and x coordinates within `path` are relative to. E.g. useful to attach a pixel sized shape to a certain data value. No effect when `xsizemode` not set to "pixel".

    • xref
      Parent: layout.shapes[]
      Type: enumerated , one of ( "paper" | "/^x([2-9]|[1-9][0-9]+)?( domain)?$/" )

      Sets the shape's x coordinate axis. If set to a x axis id (e.g. "x" or "x2"), the `x` position refers to a x coordinate. If set to "paper", the `x` position refers to the distance from the left of the plotting area in normalized coordinates where "0" ("1") corresponds to the left (right). If set to a x axis ID followed by "domain" (separated by a space), the position behaves like for "paper", but refers to the distance in fractions of the domain length from the left of the domain of that axis: e.g., "x2 domain" refers to the domain of the second x axis and a x position of 0.5 refers to the point between the left and the right of the domain of the second x axis.

    • xsizemode
      Parent: layout.shapes[]
      Type: enumerated , one of ( "scaled" | "pixel" )
      Default: "scaled"

      Sets the shapes's sizing mode along the x axis. If set to "scaled", `x0`, `x1` and x coordinates within `path` refer to data values on the x axis or a fraction of the plot area's width (`xref` set to "paper"). If set to "pixel", `xanchor` specifies the x position in terms of data or plot fraction but `x0`, `x1` and x coordinates within `path` are pixels relative to `xanchor`. This way, the shape can have a fixed width while maintaining a position relative to data or plot fraction.

    • y0
      Parent: layout.shapes[]
      Type: number or categorical coordinate string

      Sets the shape's starting y position. See `type` and `ysizemode` for more info.

    • y1
      Parent: layout.shapes[]
      Type: number or categorical coordinate string

      Sets the shape's end y position. See `type` and `ysizemode` for more info.

    • yanchor
      Parent: layout.shapes[]
      Type: number or categorical coordinate string

      Only relevant in conjunction with `ysizemode` set to "pixel". Specifies the anchor point on the y axis to which `y0`, `y1` and y coordinates within `path` are relative to. E.g. useful to attach a pixel sized shape to a certain data value. No effect when `ysizemode` not set to "pixel".

    • yref
      Parent: layout.shapes[]
      Type: enumerated , one of ( "paper" | "/^y([2-9]|[1-9][0-9]+)?( domain)?$/" )

      Sets the shape's y coordinate axis. If set to a y axis id (e.g. "y" or "y2"), the `y` position refers to a y coordinate. If set to "paper", the `y` position refers to the distance from the bottom of the plotting area in normalized coordinates where "0" ("1") corresponds to the bottom (top). If set to a y axis ID followed by "domain" (separated by a space), the position behaves like for "paper", but refers to the distance in fractions of the domain length from the bottom of the domain of that axis: e.g., "y2 domain" refers to the domain of the second y axis and a y position of 0.5 refers to the point between the bottom and the top of the domain of the second y axis.

    • ysizemode
      Parent: layout.shapes[]
      Type: enumerated , one of ( "scaled" | "pixel" )
      Default: "scaled"

      Sets the shapes's sizing mode along the y axis. If set to "scaled", `y0`, `y1` and y coordinates within `path` refer to data values on the y axis or a fraction of the plot area's height (`yref` set to "paper"). If set to "pixel", `yanchor` specifies the y position in terms of data or plot fraction but `y0`, `y1` and y coordinates within `path` are pixels relative to `yanchor`. This way, the shape can have a fixed height while maintaining a position relative to data or plot fraction.
