Axis Options

The Axis Options section of the Swarm pane provides many ways of handling Axis Labels, "Tick Marks" along the axes, and values that are displayed at the tick marks.  Approximately 50 settings can be specified to configure axes in a way that best suits a chart.

Some items that every user should explore are the reorienting of axes (especially the width axis), "Grid options", and Axis Label Offsets.  Some examples of these items are shown in the following screenshots.
