Scale Breaks 2


Quick Launch

Scale breaks allow you to skip a range of data on the axis thereby increasing the visual space available for the data that falls outside this range. This feature is most commonly used in the following cases:

- When you have to display data that varies greatly in magnitude.
- When you need to reduce the effect that several large values (peaks in data) have on the scaling of the rest of data.
- When you want to skip data that is of no interest in order to focus on the rest of the data.

In this example the axis has an automatic scale break that uses "wave" style.
