Topic: Multiple Axes

Another feature suggestion for a future version...It is great that you can choose where the axis will be places using the "The x-axis crosses at y="... field, but sometimes it would be useful to display the axis in more than one place at the same time. It would be great if you could simply enter two numbers in the box, such as "0,10" and it would draw an x axis at zero and another one at ten.

Re: Multiple Axes

The problem is that you will have to specify for each function, point series, etc. which axis to use, but I will consider it and see if I can find an easy way to implement it.

Re: Multiple Axes

Actually, what I had in mind wouldn't involve changing any coordinates, just displaying the same axis multiple times. For example, right now I can use the "The x-axis crosses at y=" field to move the x axis from y=0 to y=2. This doesn't affect any of the functions though. What I am suggesting is simply to allow both those choices to display at the same time. They are the same axis, just displayed in multiple places, so the functions and point series shouldn't need to be associated with any of them.

Then again...Ivan, I think your idea is actually useful also, maybe even more useful. Sometimes I do want to make a graph to display more than one quantity at once, and then you WOULD need differently scaled axes. For example, a graph of both temperature and pressure over time would require two differently scaled and labeled axes displayed simultaneously.

These are both actually possible to do at the moment, but it involves a little "cheating" by copying an image and pasting it into a text box (see the attached file).
