I am finding it impossible to create a very simple type of graph; one where the x-axis is a sequence of user defined categories, and the y-axis plots the corresponding values of the categories for multiple samples. I've attached an example of the type of graph I am trying to create....

Can anyone give me some advice on how to create such a graph?
Thanks!

Create your line graphs using the built-in # column for the x values, or create a number column for the x location.

Go into the Axis settings and change the X tick marks menu to "Labels". Just to the right of the X tick marks menu you will now see two new menus:
1 -- Location - set to the same column you used as your x-axis
2 -- Labels - set the to the text column that contains the corresponding labels

Hopefully this works for you.

This puts the tick marks directly above the text label as in the example you referenced. You can also have the tick marks between the labels by setting X tick marks to 'Categories'.
