#' Modify trace(s)
#'
#' Modify trace(s) of an existing plotly visualization. Useful when used in
#' conjunction with [get_figure()].
#'
#' @param p A plotly visualization.
#' @param ... Visual properties.
#' @param traces numeric vector. Which traces should be modified? By default,
#' attributes place in `...` will be applied to every trace.

#' # the return result of ggplotly()
#' (p <- ggplotly(qplot(data = mtcars, wt, mpg, geom = c("point", "smooth"))))
#' 
#' # removes hoverinfo for the line/ribbon traces (use `plotly_json()` to verify!)
#' style(p, hoverinfo = "none", traces = c(2, 3))

#' # another example with plot_ly() instead of ggplotly()
