Zoom in on charts

The Zoom (applied to the horizontal and vertical axes of the chart) determines the scale.

You can zoom in on a section of a chart using one of the following methods:

Method Description

Use the magnifying glass

  1. Click the magnifying glass.
  2. Move the mouse pointer over the chart. (The pointer changes to a magnifying glass.)
  3. One of the following:
    • Click on the chart. This centers the view on the chosen point and doubles the current zoom factor.
    • Click-and-drag the mouse to enclose the area that you want to magnify. The chart zooms to the size of the enclosed rectangle when the mouse button is released.


  • To return the chart to its default size, right-click on the chart and select Unzoom.
  • To switch temporarily from Zoom mode to Pan mode, hold down the Ctrl key.
  • To zoom out, hold down the Shift key while clicking on the chart. This centers the view on the chosen point and halves the current zoom factor.

Use the drop-down menu

  1. Click the down arrow next to the magnifying glass to open the drop-down menu.
  2. Click a percentage option to zoom the chart horizontally AND vertically by that percentage


    Click a time option (where applicable) to zoom the horizontal axis of the chart to the specified time period, while resetting the vertical axis to the default value.

Note: Time options are not available in chart views without a time axis (bar charts, for example).
