# Change the limits on a ternary diagram in Grapher

By default, the limits of all three axes in a ternary diagram range from 0 to 1. If your samples are primary grouped together in one area you can change the axis limit by completing the steps below.

- Click on any of the
*Axis*objects in the**Object Manager**to select it. - In the
**Property Manager**, click on the**Axis**tab. - In the
*Limits*section, click the*Select*button next to*Limits.* - The cursor changes to: . Press the left mouse button on one part of the graph, where the limits should begin/end.
- Hold down the cursor and drag the mouse to the other side of the graph, where the limits should begin/end. Notice the rectangle and triangle drawn on the screen as you drag the bounding box (highlighted in the image in red). The triangle should always remain inside the limits of the existing ternary diagram. The triangle is approximately the size of the new limits.

*Highlight the desired axis limits by dragging a box around that part of the graph.*

- Release the cursor and the axis limits for all three axes update.

You can also adjust the ternary axis limits using numbers in the advanced dialog. This can be used to adjust the previous limits or this can be done from the beginning if you know the exact limits you want. To do this,

- Click on any of the axes in the
**Object Manager**to select it. - In the
**Property Manager**, click on the**Axis**tab. - In the
*Limits*section, click the*Enter limits*button next to the*Advanced*command. - In the
**Axes Limits**dialog, enter the*Min*and*Max*value for each axis.

*Set the ternary axis limits in the Axes Limits dialog.*
