How to make category names on box plot X axis visible?
Dec 21, 2009 4:05 PM(2059 views)
I have multiple groups of data that I am plotting on a box plot and my problem is the category names at the end of the box plot window to the right are crammed and I cannot see them. Is there any way I can make these categores visible? I already did Rotated Tick labels and also tried to expand my box plots but I still cannot see the categores clearly. It almost looks like the data is on top of each other.
I'm guessing you are using Fit Y by X and that you have left the X axis in its default state. Try turning off (something like) Proportional Spacing for the x axis. Proportional Spacing spreads the tick marks proportional to the number of data points used for each category. This can sometimes cause some level lables to bunch up as you describe.
