@mforns & I were discussing this in out weekly review meeting that showing a popup just over the Change Chart selector dropdown saying switch to 'Line Chart' for ease of read/visibility.

This can be slightly tricky as we would need to work out a logic to show a popup only for difficult to read (very dense) bar charts.
