    Hi all,

    I was wondering whether anyone knew how to get x axis labels for the screenshot of the chart i have attached? I want 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 (Distance) for the x axis wherever the vertical lines are and the little tick marks are? Please help I have a submission tomorrow?


    Thanks!

    Do you have data sets for both the x and y axis, and if so have you selected them both when creating the chart?

    For example here's one that I've made, with the two sets of data one for each axis. Where Sample Number would be the equivalent of Distance.

    No, I didn't actually. But I have two lines on the graph, the blue and the green.

    Yeah so for two lines on the graph you have three data sets right, two for time (on the y axis) and one for distance (for the x axis)?
    Or do you only have two data sets and it's graphing both on the y axis?

    Maybe this is a better example, where I have Position for the x axis and Hough and Laplacian in the y axis to create two lines on the graph. In this case I selected all three columns of data and then chose 2D line graph from the Chart button on the toolbar.

    EDIT: I took your screenshot and made a chart (see the second screenshot I uploaded), is this what you want?
    I did have to manually select the label references (Axis > Category (X), Label References) to add in the distance labels.
