9.2.6 The (Plot Details) Axis Tab

The Plot Details Axis Tab 1.png

Length

The length text boxes specify the X-, Y-, and Z-axes' physical lengths. They are in units of % of the layer frame. For example, to display the X-axis at 50% of its full length, type 50 in the X text box.

Rotation

The rotation text boxes manually set the angle of rotation about the Azimuth, Inclination and Roll. The units of this text box are degrees and independent of the Angular Unit setting on the Numeric Format tab of the Option dialog box. You can also use the 3D Rotation Toolbar to rotate a graph about its axes which will update these values.

Orientation of Labels & Titles & Ticks group

Specify whether to apply the orientation of tick labels, ticks and axis titles for all axes to the whole graph, the plane of the screen or the corresponding axes plane. To control the settings for a single axis, you can use the Orientation option in the Show tab of Axis dialog.

All in Axes Plane Rotate the tick labels, ticks and axis titles in the planes of their respective axes.
All in Plane of Screen Rotate the tick labels, ticks and axis titles in the plane of the screen.
Titles in Axes Plane Rotate the axis titles in the planes of their respective axes and rotate the tick labels and ticks in the plane of the screen.
Ticks in Axes Plane Rotate the ticks in the planes of their respective axes and rotate the axis titles and tick labels in the plane of the screen.
Tick Labels in Axes Plane Rotate the Tick Labels in the planes of their respective axes and rotate the axis titles and ticks in the plane of the screen.
Ticks & Tick Labels in Axes Plane Rotate the ticks and tick labels in the planes of their respective axes and rotate the axis titles in the plane of the screen.

Link Axis Length to Scale (isometric)

Reset the axis length to maintain the aspect ratio of actual axis scales. When you select an axis group from the drop-down list, the length of the axis with longer actual scale is preserved and other axes will be shortened according to the aspect ratio. Only the length of one axis in this axis group will be editable.

Note:

When there is an axis break on one of the axes, this control will be hidden.

This control is not available for 3D XYY graphs, such as 3D waterfall.

The same setting for 2D graphs is available in the Size/Speed tab of Plot Details.
