Visualization Icon Position
With Visualization Icon Position (Figure 8) you can choose the position of the visualization icon within the sheet from the dropdown. You have two options when choosing a Position Type to specify the distance from the edge of the chart - Dynamic (the icon is positioned using percentages) or Static (the icon is positioned using pixels). You can also use Dynamic or Static dimension settings to vary the Size of the icon. The example here uses a Static Bottom Right position.

You can also vary the position of the Icon within a specific visualization by clicking to open the settings, and enabling Overwrite icon position (Figure 9).

Figure 10 shows the difference between static and dynamic settings. On the left, the icon is set to 45 pixels (static), so it will remain the same size. On the right, the icon is set to 35% of the overall visualization size (dynamic), so it will re-size automatically when the visualization dimensions change.
