Hey Desmos-friends, this is a quick announcement that you can now attach a label to any point you create in Desmos.

Here is why this feature was worth your wait and worth a blog post.

It winds up being exceptionally easy to create confusing labels. As we thought about this feature, we noticed that other software attaches labels to points without any concern for the location of other labels, making it very easy to create a situation where several labels pile confusingly on top of each other.

So we invested significant amounts of time constructing a label placement algorithm to make it impossible to place one label on top of another.

To use labels, type in any coordinate pair and then click “Show Label.” Give it a try!
