Fixed number of x-axis labels in a chart for any number of records

FileMaker has extremely functional charts, but one tricky part I’ve found is making the x-axis display in an appealing format. The values along the x-axis can overlapIf you have a lot of records. Summaries can help with this, but what if you don’t know how many points you’re going to have to plot, or the range which would need to be summarized? For example: A client of mine has an environment monitor that monitors temperature in a manufacturing facility to make sure it doesn’t get too war
