Cropping a stacked area chart

I have a stacked area chart showing 5 values over a period of more than 3 years.

In order to better show the latest development of those values, I changed the x and y axis so as to cut off the earlier days and the higher values.

In the resulting chart I expected to see a cropped image of the lower right of the complete chart, but instead I get an empty triangle on the upper left (which should be colored light blue), no matter how I choose the cutoffs for both axis.

Here is a screenshot of the cropped chart and of the complete chart:

BTW the same happens with non-stacked (normal) area charts. It gets even worse.
I thought I could make a work-around by replacing the data colums by their sums:
new column 1 = old column 1
new column 2 = old column 1 + old column 2

new column 5 = old column 1 + old column 2 + … + old column 5
The non-cropped chart looks exactly liked the stacked area chart before.
But when I now crop the result is:

As a workaround, the Y Axis Maximum value must be equal or more than the sum of the 5 values at the first date (01.01.22 in your screenshot). So adjust the value in the fourth data column to not pass 1000.


I think that here is a bug.

Thank you for your answer.
In my case, if I adapt the y-axis it would go up to over 9000, and it wouldn’t be the cropped chart that I want. On the other hand I don’t want to manipulate the data just to get a correct chart.
