    Hi brend0n,

    If you set the Start major ticks at to 1970, the minor ticks will show between 1973 and 1980. The first major tick will then be 1980.

    Thanks!

    Thanks Leslie,i knew it was going to be a simple task However, can the minor grid lines start at 1973 for showing every year, as well as the major startign at 1980, the above method seems to cut all grid line pre-1980. basically I'm chasing 1973-1979 (minor),1980 (major) 1981-1989 (minor), 1990 (Major) etc....

    Hello brend0n,

    Yes, this is possible in Grapher 9. To specify a custom starting tick mark and then have ticks every 10 from then on:

    1. Click on the x axis in the Object Manager
    2. Click on the Tick Marks tab in the Property Manager
    3. In the Major ticks section, set the Spacing to 10.
    4. In the Tick range  section, set Start major ticks at to 1980.

    Thanks!

    Leslie
