XY – Line graph

As shown in Figure 56 we also can have line graphs. To do this using the data from the table in Figure 65:

  1. Select the data and labels to be used as shown in the graph (Figure 68).

  2. Create the line graph by clicking on the Chart icon in the main menu bar (see Figure 41), selecting the XY chart and then the Lines with Symbols variant.

  3. Add the Title and axes labels as we have done for the scatter plot example above.

Ideally we would have simply changed the Chart Type from Scatter plot to Line with symbol, but Calc currently does not seem to sort a data series that is added to a graph.


This produces the line graph in Figure 69.
