Modify the histogram area

Please note that the modifications in the histogram area will always be set back and hence are not permanent.

Adjust the numeric scale of the histogram

If you wish to modify the resolution of the numeric scale in the histogram, place the mouse cursor on the numeric scale and drag it either upward (enlarging) or downward (reducing).

Adjust the height of the histogram

Accordingly, you can modify the height of the histogram. Drag the horizontal splitter bar between histogram and table/diagram area upward or downward. This is only possible when a vertical scrollbar is shown!

You can modify the width ratio between the table and the diagram by moving the vertical splitter bar between them.
