I have a single X axis and two stacked Y axes in my Grapher graph. Is there a way to create grid lines parallel to both of the Y axes?

Yes, grid lines can be added that will appear across both Y axes.  Follow the steps below to create the grid lines.

 

  1. Click on the X axis to select it.
  2. In the Property Manager, click on the Line tab.
  3. In the Grid Line Properties section, set the Parallel axis to the first Y axis.
  4. In the Grid Line Properties section, check the box next to Major tick grid line option.
  5. Click the Graph Tools | Add to Graph | Axis command. 
  6. Check the Disable tick marks and Disable labels boxes to turn off the display of tick marks and labels.
  7. Click OK.
  8. After the axis is created, click once on the new axis in either the Object Manager or plot window to select it. 
  9. In the Property Manager, click on the Line tab.
  10. In the Grid Line Properties, change the Parallel axis to the second Y axis.
  11. Check the box next to the Major tick grid line option. 
  12. In the Label Leader Line Properties, expand the Major tick label level and change the line Style to Invisible to turn off the axis line display. Only the grid lines remain.
  13. Repeat these steps for each additional Y axis.
