# Issue

This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by LLA

I took an interesting sample of ggplot here and remade it for my data
Ma data is excel file
15 obs. of 9 var.

``````plot3 <- ggplot(md4, aes(x = col)) +
geom_col(
aes(y = Orp, fill = 'Orp')) +geom_text(aes(y=Orp, label = paste(Orp, " [", CI1," ; ", CI2, "]", sep = ""), hjust = "right"))+
geom_col(
aes(y = -Orn, fill = 'Orn')) + geom_text(aes(y=-Orn, label = paste(Orn, " [", CI3," ; ", CI4, "]", sep = ""), hjust = "left"))+
coord_flip() +
scale_y_continuous()
plot3
``````

But this is where my understanding of R ended completely.
my plot

1. Why is my variables in the schedule not in order ???

2 What should I write for the axis, so that they are aligned. The source was scale_y_continious (?), but I could not cope with an example.

3 And what to do so that data labels were on the right and left edges of the plot.

# Solution

For your first issue of reordering you need to transform your character column to factors (as Gregor pointed out) via `md4\$col = factor(md4\$col, levels = unique(md4\$col))` or just `md4\$col = factor(md4\$col, levels = md4\$col)` as apparently you don’t have repeating values in your column.

For the second issue as far as I know `hjust` should be between 0 to 1 for left and right justified text relative to your datapoint respectively, so you may want to set it 0 for your ORpos and 1 for ORneg data and then extend your scales to fit in all text, hope this helps:

``````md4\$col = factor(md4\$col, levels = rev(md4\$col))

ggplot(md4, aes(x = col)) +
geom_col( aes(y = ORpos, fill = 'Positive culter')) +
geom_text(aes(y=7, label = paste(ORpos, " [", CI1,"; ", CI2, "]", sep = " "), hjust = 0))+
geom_col( aes(y = -ORneg, fill = 'Negative culter')) +
geom_text(aes(y=-7, label = paste(ORneg, " [", CI3,"; ", CI4, "]", sep = " "), hjust = 1))+
coord_flip() +
scale_y_continuous(limits = c(-10, 10), breaks = c(-10:10))
``````
