General 2D Graphs
Show Left/Right/Bottom/Top Axis
Specify whether show the axes at current direction. You can select both the Left and Right Y axis, or Bottom and Top axis.
Rescale Each Axis Independently
This option is only available for Vertical direction. Select it to rescale the selected Left and Right axis independently. And then, the Right Y and Left Y be independent, you can go to the following Scale tab, Grid tab, Reference Lines tab and Breaks tab to customize the axis elements respectively.
Note: Once the Plot Data on is set to Right Y Axis in Display tab of Plot Details dialog', these three options(Show Left Axis, Show Right Axis and Rescale Each Axis independently) will be checked simultaneously.
Align Both Axes at
This option is only available for Vertical direction.
Selecting it to enter a vartical position value into the following blank box to make the right Y axis(left and right Y) align to a certain axis position of left axis. The right Y axis will be rescaled to show the whole range of the dependent plots while aligns to the position of left Y axis.
General 3D Graphs
When the Use Only One Axis For Each Direction check box is selected, the control will be a Show Axis drop-down list, from which you can select which axis to be shown for the selected axis(axes), or show neither.
When the Use Only One Axis For Each Direction check box is cleared, the control will become two check boxes(Show Front/Back/Bottom/Top/Left/Right Axis). You can determine whether to show/hide an axis using its check box. The selected axes will be listed on Tick Labels, Title, Line and Ticks, Special Ticks tab to let you customzie the display of these axes.
Note: For the Zh Axis in the 3D Ternary Graph, when the Use Only One Axis For Each Direction check box is cleared, the control will become three check boxes (Show ZhX/ZhY/ZhZ Axis).
This drop-down menu is used to control the orientation of axis tick labels, titles, ticks.etc for the selected axis(axes). For global control of all axes, go to the Axis tab in Plot Details:Layer Properties dialog as instructed by the dialog hint.
For detailed explanation of each options, please also refer to the Origin Help file of the Axis tab.
Rescale Each Axis Indepenedent
For XYZ plots, you are allowed to rescale the each Z axis independently. For XYY plots, you are alllowed to rescale the each Y axis independently. Once you checked this check box, two Z/Y axes will be shown on Scale tab, and you can plot two different 3D plots in same 3D layer and show them in their own Z/Y axis range. And the Grids and Breaks tab will also show two Z/Y axes to allow you adding grid lines and axia breaks independently.
Note: No matter whether you have checked the option Use Only One Axis For Each Direction, check this check box will make the Show Axis drop-down list trun to Show Left/Right Axis check boxes.
2D Waterfall Graphs and 2D Ternary Graph
There are two check boxes(Show Front/Back/Bottom/Top/Left/Right Axis). You can determine whether to show/hide an axis using its check box.
