I've been playing with the wizard on and on for a few days, but I feel that I'm simply not experienced enough.
I have gotten to the point where I have created an XY chart, with axes labeled from -5 to 5 for both, and points that are located at each place where the coordinates meet, but I am unable to reverse engineer this chart to make what I wanna make.Mon, 11 Apr 2016 17:39:32 +0200https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/68056/how-can-i-create-a-blank-math-xy-chart/Answer by oweng for <p>I'm attempting to make either a blank XY chart, or a chart that will have points on coordinates only, or lines going through coordinate points and stretching to both -∞ and ∞ on either axis.

I have left the legend visible, but this can be deleted. It uses a basic set of four coordinate pairs and the scale of the values can be set as required. To remove the data series points:
1. Edit chart.
2. Right-click on data series (point) > *Format Data Series...*
3. *Line* tab > *Icon* section > change pull-down selection to "No Symbol" > click OK.Tue, 12 Apr 2016 14:29:37 +0200https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/68056/how-can-i-create-a-blank-math-xy-chart/?answer=68108#post-id-68108Answer by boristhespider for <p>I'm attempting to make either a blank XY chart, or a chart that will have points on coordinates only, or lines going through coordinate points and stretching to both -∞ and ∞ on either axis.

https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/68056/how-can-i-create-a-blank-math-xy-chart/?answer=68240#post-id-68240The "No symbol" has brought me closer to what I am trying to accomplish. Through this process, I have had a really tough time learning the difference between Data Range and Data Series. I assume Range is the graduation of a chart, and Series is actual data. I run into trouble when I go in thinking this.
I still have to figure out how to place data points on specific coordinates.These point would require a symbol.
I also have to figure out why my Data Range(?) keeps changing from -5-0-5 to 0-5.
Thanks for your help, and your continued help?Thu, 14 Apr 2016 15:48:52 +0200https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/68056/how-can-i-create-a-blank-math-xy-chart/?answer=68240#post-id-68240Comment by Lupp for <p>The "No symbol" has brought me closer to what I am trying to accomplish.

https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/68056/how-can-i-create-a-blank-math-xy-chart/?comment=68247#post-id-68247I have a feeling that I misunderstood something. Might be I get it better if you add a hint on what you want to achieve with the help of a "blank x-y-chart".
The editable 'Data Range', however, should be the union of all the ranges used to define/describe the data series given in a specific syntax.
The relevant specifications for charts (not details concerning implementation) you find in chapter 11 of [this document](http://docs.oasis-open.org/office/v1.2/os/OpenDocument-v1.2-os-part1.pdf).Thu, 14 Apr 2016 17:42:02 +0200https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/68056/how-can-i-create-a-blank-math-xy-chart/?comment=68247#post-id-68247
