#' Dodge overlapping objects side-to-side
#'
#' Dodging preserves the vertical position of an geom while adjusting the
#' horizontal position. `position_dodge2` is a special case of `position_dodge`
#' for arranging box plots, which can have variable widths. `position_dodge2`
#' also works with bars and rectangles.
#'
#' @inheritParams position_identity
#' @param width Dodging width, when different to the width of the individual
#'   elements. This is useful when you want to align narrow geoms with wider
#'   geoms. See the examples.
#' @param preserve Should dodging preserve the total width of all elements
#'    at a position, or the width of a single element?

#' ggplot(mtcars, aes(factor(cyl), fill = factor(vs))) +
#'   geom_bar(position = "dodge2")
#'
#' # By default, dodging with `position_dodge2()` preserves the width of each
#' # element. You can choose to preserve the total width with:
#' ggplot(mtcars, aes(factor(cyl), fill = factor(vs))) +
#'   geom_bar(position = position_dodge(preserve = "total"))
#'
#' \donttest{
#' ggplot(diamonds, aes(price, fill = cut)) +
#'   geom_histogram(position="dodge2")
#' # see ?geom_bar for more examples
#'
#' # In this case a frequency polygon is probably a better choice
#' ggplot(diamonds, aes(price, colour = cut)) +
#'   geom_freqpoly()
#' }

#' # Dodging with various widths -------------------------------------
#' # To dodge items with different widths, you need to be explicit
#' df <- data.frame(x = c("a","a","b","b"), y = 2:5, g = rep(1:2, 2))
#' p <- ggplot(df, aes(x, y, group = g)) +
#'   geom_col(position = "dodge", fill = "grey50", colour = "black")
#' p
#'
#' # A line range has no width:
#' p + geom_linerange(aes(ymin = y - 1, ymax = y + 1), position = "dodge")
#'
#' # So you must explicitly specify the width
#' p + geom_linerange(
#'   aes(ymin = y - 1, ymax = y + 1),
#'   position = position_dodge(width = 0.9)
#' )
#'
#' # The same principle applies to error bars, which are usually
#' # narrower than the bars
#' p + geom_errorbar(
#'   aes(ymin = y - 1, ymax = y + 1),
#'   width = 0.2,
#'   position = "dodge"
#' )

#'   aes(ymin = y - 1, ymax = y + 1),
#'   width = 0.2,
#'   position = position_dodge(width = 0.9)
#' )

#' # Box plots use position_dodge2 by default, and bars can use it too
