User-defined Tick Marks

Use this to edit a set of user-defined tick marks. Major tick marks are drawn at the positions listed, along with a corresponding set of labels used to mark the axis. If user-defined tick marks were not specified when the graph was originally plotted, the positions are generated automatically along with a set of numeric labels. Note that any text or numeric value can be used when editing the labels.

  1. Double-click your graph then select the relevant Axis tab (Y Axis, X Axis or Z Axis).
  2. In the Display tick marks section click User, then click the Edit values button.

To edit a tick mark you need to select it from the list. It will then be highlighted to show that it is the current tick mark. You can then change the position and label as required before replacing the original values or adding it as a new tick mark.
