How can I change the spacing of the labels and grid lines on my Grapher piper plot?

This article tells you how to change the spacing of labels and grid lines for the piper plot.grf sample file. By default the spacing is 20, but this article explains how to change the spacing to 10. This can be changed to other values, this is just the value that was chosen for this example.

 

In Grapher 13, to change the spacing in any of the plots:

  1. Click on the Diamond Z2 CO3_HCO3 layer in the Object Manager.
  2. Click on the Ticks tab in the Property Manager. 
  3. Change the Spacing in the Major Ticks section from 20 to 10.
  4. Repeat for all necessary layers. 

 

Grapher 12 and previous versions follow these instructions:
