Specifying time scale settings
and scale settings

To open the dialog box, right-click in the plot area and then click Settings.

For a Gantt chart, you can specify the time scale settings and the data presentation scale settings.

For a planner, you can only specify the time scale settings.

Any changes in the settings take effect immediately (if they affect the visual elements).

Specifying time scale settings

The time scale is actually a list of time scale items, each having its own settings.

You can manage the list using the command bar buttons.

You can specify individual item settings by editing their properties in the list columns.

You can change the relative positions of time scale items using the Move up and Move down buttons.

Each scale item has a time unit and a multiplier. For example, selecting Day and 1 sets the smallest time scale unit to 1 day.

For a more detailed view, you can create additional items. If you want to split the day into hours in the example provided above, add a new item with the Hour time scale and the appropriate multiplier.

In the Visible column, set the scale item visibility.

In the Day format column, select the day presentation format. The selection is available if the Day value is selected in the Time unit column.

In the Tick-marks column, select the style for the vertical grid lines.

In Designer mode you can also specify the time unit presentation format and the line color.

While you are editing the Labels column, the button that opens the time scale item label settings dialog box becomes available.

Specifying scale settings (for Gantt charts only)

The controls for specifying the scale settings are located below the list of time scale items.

Select the data display mode:

All data. The plot area displays all available data. The beginning and the end of the time scale match the beginning and end date of the report. If the report period is big enough to show the main scale unit, the scale is not displayed.

Auto. The scale is calculated automatically based on the smallest time scale unit, even if it is hidden.

Fixed. A fixed scale, which is set using two values: the time unit and the number of characters for the time unit presentation.

Period. A fixed period, which is set using two values: the time unit and the number of time units.

If some data does not fit the displayed time scale, a scroll bar is added to the bottom.

Specifying vertical scrolling settings (for Gantt charts only)

If all of the chart points do not fit the area, you can use a scroll bar or you can disable the vertical scrolling using the Vertical scrolling check box.

If this case all points are displayed in the plot area but their text presentation is not displayed, even if it is enabled in the settings.
