chart aspect ratio

chart aspect ratio

When using the chart function the height to width aspect ratio is decided by the worksheet plot. However, the width of the worksheet plot cannot be made smaller than the width of the equations used to generate the plot. If you want a graph that is tall and thin - and you don't want to mess with the equation layout - you have to stretch the worksheet graph incurring wasted space and a very large graph. 

It would be good if the equation box could be decoupled from the graph - so that it can be correctly sized in the worksheet - alternatively, the sizing could be done within the chart function.

Only half the required chart is showing - the size slider is maxed out and cannot show the whole graph.

It takes several pages in the worksheet to get the desired aspect ratio.

 

Business case - usability.

Just to complete the story - on saving the file with the long graph it corrupted that part of the worksheet - on opening the graph was gone and this was left:-

However, the rest of the worksheet was intact.
