How to customize ticks in your x axis

You're making great progress with your chart, but it's all just feeling a bit cluttered. Maybe you don't want to emphasize each and every year in your data? You might want to try reducing the number of visible years on your x axis.

How to customize ticks in your x axis

    1
    In the X axis settings, head over to Ticks and Labels activate Styling. "Ticks to show".

    2
    Set "Mode" to "Number" and set the number of ticks you would like to be visible. For example, if you only want every second year to appear in the above example and there are 10 years in total, you would set "Number" to "5".

    If this doesn't display the amount of ticks you would like it to, you can also try the "Custom" option. This allows you to write exactly which ticks you would like to appear. Just copy the values you'd like to appear in your axis from the data tab.
