We are introducing a new graph design, but has a problem with not being able to override the tick marks in the category axis in Illustrator CS5.
A typical graph (line layout) can have 250 observations, and since we have the tick marks on full width, the graph gets "crowded" with black lines.
In the value axis there is possibilites for overriding the values, but not on the category axis.
Is there any way to script so that the tick marks in the category axis can be reduced/overrided to e.g. 1 in 20?
Script has NO access to live graph data… It can only break them… then fish in the group for bits…
Is there any othe way to do this?
other than what Mark suggested, probably not.
