Enable series clustering

Choose this option to cluster series groups. When multiple series for bar or column charts are clustered, they are displayed along two distinct rows in the chart area. If series are not clustered, their corresponding data points are displayed adjacent to each other in one row. This option is applicable only to bar and column charts.

Inclination

Rotates the chart vertically.

Projection mode

If series are not clustered, their corresponding data points are displayed adjacent to each other in one row. This option is applicable only to bar and column charts.

Depth ratio

Specify the depth of the data points, measured as a percentage of data point width. This value must be between 0 and 1000.

Gap depth

Specify the distance between data series that are displayed along distinct rows, as a result of clustering.
