Hello,

I would like to build a figure similar to this one:


My problem is that I can't generate a uniform spacing in powers of 10 (DG does it in 1e2). I tried to fix it specifically but it automatically modifies the way it represents the data:

By default the tick marks will lessen when the graph is smaller. In your example, it looks like it is snapping too quickly to minimize the major tick marks. We are going to update the Beta to better deal with this case in log scale.

You can also override the default tick mark locations in the detail view of the Axis settings.

For example, you can change the X tick marks to 'Uniform' with a Stride in x of 1.


For this example, we noticed that the changing the format from something other than 'Standard' was not working properly for the logarithmic scale (e.g., to show scientific notation).

Please download the latest Beta for this fix as well.

Hopefully, that gets the major tick marks correct.

thank you very much for the quick response. It works perfectly now.
One last suggestion, could you leave the possibility of customizing the size of the tick marks? Similar to the otion "Exactly..." as in the other commands. This way I could choose a very large size as the figure I want to imitate.
