1.278 FAQ-1142 Why does my major axis tick increment not update?

Last Update: 6/21/2022

By default, Origin graphs have a max tick count of 20 for numeric axes and 400 for text and date/time axes. If you attempt to lower your ticks By Increments or set ticks By Counts, you may exceed that limit and the tick increments will fail to update. E.g. a tick increment of 2 and an axis range of 0-100 is 50 ticks.

To change this setting, go to Preferences:Options, select the Axis tab and increase the value in Numeric Scales or Text/Date Time Scales.
