Easy: draw the x-axis values vertical and use a smaller font.
Complex: build a repeating field in which you only put every third value, rotate it, place it over the ugly x-axis values, covering them.
Use a plugin like xmChart.
Hi siplus. Thank you for the reply. It definitely works and I'll accept it as the solution for the time being but it'd be lovely if there was a way to show, say, every third tick mark to make the graph look more presentable. Maybe FMP could build in some functionality at some point assuming I'm not the only one having this issue.
I agree completely with you. A "show every [ ] values on x-axis" is a must. I have plots of building sites where explosives are used and data showing the dB every millisecond or so, with the need of plotting a whole day of noise generated.
I also have sensors measuring the floor temp of a bridge which freezes often, having nozzles that must spray saline solution when the temp falls below a specified value and the need to plot this over the day, data is sent to a ftp server and we download it and plot... but then, I try to never forget that FM Pro is a DBMS and special situations/solutions might need a plugin to enhance what is meant to cover a lot but not everything....
