Is there a way to change the default camera icon in the mode bar layout to that of a download icon without tampering with the download capability ? Also is there a way to make it solid and not have to appear only during hover ?
You can have the modebar always display using the
displayModeBar. And see https://plot.ly/python/configuration-options/ for info on how to pass config option through the Python API.
Hope that helps,
Thanks for the help @jmmease
