Hi there,

I want to create a line graph with two categories on the X-axis. However, they are automatically placed at the very edges of the axis, which doesn't look very clear. How can I arrange them more centrally?

I've already tried adding three additional categories (two empty ones for space on the left and right and one in the middle with a calculated mean), but this is not a very elegant solution, is it?

I'd be happy about any advice! :-)

thank you for your answer! However, I don't know what to do in the last step. I've tried a lot of possible combinations in the options, but I can't move the Labels to the middle.

The labels are placed like this: A------------B And I want them to be placed like this: ---A------B---

Thanks again!
