Changing the Size of Graphic Elements

You can change the size of the graphic elements in the visualization. These include bars, lines, and points among others. If the graphic element is sized by a variable or field, the specified size is the minimum size.

How to Change the Size of the Graphic Elements

  1. Select the graphic elements you want to resize.
  2. Use the slider or enter a specific size for the option available on the symbol toolbar. The unit is pixels unless you indicate a different unit (see below for a full list of unit abbreviations). You can also specify a percentage (such as 30%), which means that a graphic element uses the specified percentage of the available space. The available space depends on the graphic element type and the specific visualization.
