  3. Colour
Stacking value type
Defines how dots are stacked - the number of values, an alternate set of values or a random jitter:
Count: the Y value is defined by the number of values that are the same (only applied when the Stacking Type is Position or Colour)
Values: provide another range the same shape as the source values to allow plotting of specific X and Y values (only applied when the Stacking Type is Position or Colour)
Jitter: the Y value is taken from a fixed set of random values to allow dots near each other to be easily distinguished (only applied when the Stacking Type is Position)
