Two new options for quick graph and multiple graph settings:
Synchronise dependent axes
If a graph has two dependent axes, then the axis grids can be confusing, see below left. If you tick
Synchronise dependent axes then the top/right dependent axis uses the same axis grids as the bottom/left dependent axis. The axis grids are simpler. GeoData Manager changes the top/right axis numbers to suit the new grid.
Show right/top axis
If the main dependent axis is at the bottom or on the left of a graph. If this axis has distance down a well (depth, vertical depth or elevation) then you can choose to display a second dependent axis (depth, vertical depth or elevation). And in a multiple graph with more than one well, you can choose which well that GeoData Manager will use to calculate the values for the second axis.
In this example, the main dependent axis is elevation, the second dependent axis is depth and the second axis shows the depths for well AT-102:
