Chart Settings

The Settings section provides a number of general and chart-specific settings.

General

Samples
Specify the number of samples to use when plotting a chart.
X-Scale
Linear
Use a linear scale for the X-axis.
Log
Use a logarithmic scale for the X-axis.
Y-Scale
Linear
Use a linear scale for the Y-axis.
Log
Use a logarithmic scale for the Y-axis.
X-Range (min)
Specify the minimum value to be plotted along the X-axis.
X-Range (max)
Specify the maximum value to be plotted along the X-axis.
Y-Range (min)
Specify the minimum value to be plotted along the Y-axis.
Y-Range (max)
Specify the maximum value to be plotted along the Y-axis.

Line Chart

Layout
Default
No fill under the plotted line.
Filled
Fill the area below the plotted line with color.

Scatter Chart

Layout
Default
Scatter points appear as separate entities on the chart.
Filled
A line extends from each scatter point to the X-axis.

Pie Chart

Layout
Default
Pie slices extend into the center of the chart.
Donut
The center of the chart is empty, providing the data in the shape of a ring.

Bar Chart

Bar orientation
Default
Bars are displayed vertically in the chart.
Horizontal
Bars are displayed horizontally in the chart.
Layout
Default
Each grouping in a particular data set is displayed as a separate bar in the chart.
Stacked
All of the related groupings of data in a particular data set are stacked on top of one another contiguously in a single bar.
Stepped
All of the related groupings of data in a particular data set are displayed next to one another in an ascending series of separate bars.
Percentile
All of the related groupings of data in a particular data set are stacked on top of one another contiguously in a single bar; the height of each grouping in the bar corresponds to its value in relation to the other groupings in the same data set.

Histogram (1D) Chart

Layout
Default
Stacked
Bins
You can select a particular binning method or choose a specific bin size.

The following are the available binning methods:

Default
Sturges
Compute the number of bins based on the length of data
Scott
Asymptotically minimize the mean square error
Freedman-Diaconis
Twice the interquartile range divided by the cube root of sample size
Knuth
Balance likelihood and prior probability of a piecewise uniform model
Wand
One-level recursive approximate Wand binning

The following are the available bin sizes:

10
20
50
100
Heights
Count
The number of values lying in each bin
Cumulative Count
Cumulative counts
Survival Count
Survival counts
Probability
Fraction of values lying in each bin
CDF
Cumulative distribution function
SF
Survival function
HF
Hazard function
CHF
Cumulative hazard function
