Label map axes with dates or other custom text in Surfer

Full support of date/time data was added in Surfer 12. When mapping date/time data, the axis label formatting may also need to be adjusted. To format axes on a Surfer map with dates or times, follow these steps:

  1. Create the map using dates or times for the X or Y data. See: How can I grid my data using date/times?
  2. Click the appropriate Axis in the Contents window, to select it.
  3. In the Properties window, click on the Labels page and expand the Label Format section.
  4. Click in the Type field and select Date/time.
  5. The format of the labels can then be adjusted in the Date/Time Format field.
