" Flash and SVG images provide the greatest degree of interaction because they support mouse-over behaviors (such as popup data labels), navigation, and drilling."
PNG is literally just a picture, an image.
I want to change to PNG because I want to view reports on mobile (which web browsers like Firefox or Chrome do not support Flash).

Can you list some other limitations?
Any single kind of interaction where the chart would change or react to your interaction.
You know there is a mobile app (iOS and Android) for mobile devices, right?
You may also want to consider an upgrade to 126.96.36.199 or 12c so you can render everything in HTML5 which works perfectly on mobile devices browsers.
1.) Android / iOS apps for OBI
2.) Develop new content using BIMAD (Business Intelligence Mobile Application Designer)
3.) Upgrade to a version that actually uses html5 for everything
I know that upgrading to 188.8.131.52 or higher would work, but I also want to know the limitations of viewing chart in PNG format. Can you list some of them?
You probably didn't read anythng that I posted but again:
Specifies the default type for rendering an image when a format has not been specified in the URL or in the XML file for the view. Valid values are flash, png (W3C Portable Network Graphics), and svg (W3C Scalable Vector Graphics). Flash and SVG images provide the greatest degree of interaction because they support mouse-over behaviors (such as popup data labels), navigation, and drilling.
The svg value is not supported in this release, so flash is used if svg is specified."
Now I understand. Thank you.
