Changing the Scale Style of an Axis


You can specify one of the following three scale styles:

  • Linear
  • Logarithmic
  • Time

The scale style determines what other formatting options are available for a values axis.


You can change the scale style of a values axis but not of a categories axis. This is regardless of whether it is the X axis or the Y axis.


  1. Double-click the axis.
  2. Choose Scale.
  3. Select the scale style required.
