Chart Y-axis auto-scale problem


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac 10.6.6

Description of the issue

Certain combinations of data cause the Y-axis of a chart to no longer auto-scale.  Y = 0 is always shown, which reduces the resolution of the line.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create table with three fields - Sequence, Value1, Value2
Create three entries in table:
-  1, 71.4, 67.6
-  2, 72.6, 84.6
-  3, 73.3, 72.9
Create a chart:
-   Line (Poly-line)
-   X = Sequence
-   Y = Value1 and Value2
-   Use data from current found set

Expected result

Y-axis to range from approximately 66 to 86

Actual result

Y-axis ranges from 0 to 100

Configuration information

In this example, omitting record 1 or 2 will cause the Y-axis to properly auto-scale.  Omitting record 3 has no affect.


None.  (Can not lock Y range due to changing data values.)
