[Solved] How to display value of point on graph?

Postby marty-0750 » Sat May 04, 2019 11:15 am

I click on the graph line in edit mode and the plot points light up as green little squares all along the graph curve/line. I hover over a point hoping it reveals its x,y value. But all I get is a label saying "Data Series 'column B' on any of the green points. Clicking takes me to a configure panel no use! How do I get the value of that data point to display?

Are you using chart type XY Scatter? Then choose subtype Points Only or Points and Lines. If the chart displays points, when you're in chart-edit mode hovering one of them will show you the X and Y coordinates. Here, X=-.49 and Y=.2401.

That works o "Line" too if it is displayed only as points.

Thanks
