General

“Chart title”, “Title font size”, “Chart subtitle”, “Subtitle font size”, and “Show tooltips” can be found in the General section of our Chart Settings page.

Stacked
When selected, stacks each Bar layer. (See the Bar chart’s General settings for more info about stacked Bar charts)
Percentage
Changes your y-axis to show percentages (visually, x-axis if Horizontal is selected)

Charts with a percentage axis are sometimes called 100% stacked charts and are useful for displaying ratios without focusing on individual values.

Series

Show dots
Shows dots on the line
Linear interpolation
Choose the type of interpolation for your chart:
  • No interpolation (linear): Uses the least number of data points, resulting in more jagged lines
  • Step: No slopes; jumps from one value to the next halfway through
  • Cardinal (smoothed): Uses more data points than Linear interpolation, resulting in smoother lines
Line weight
Specify the boldness of the line
Use custom styles
Style your lines
  • Solid
  • Dashed
  • Dotted
Dual Y-axis
Selected by default; if deselected, the line will use the same range values as the left y-axis, which may make it more difficult to spot trends in your line
Last X columns as lines
Turns the specified number of columns into lines

Default value is 1, meaning the last column in your result set is charted as a line
