# Customize axes

Thomas shared this idea 5 years ago
Under Consideration

I often use geogebra for school. It is also especially usefull for very

simple things such as creating number lines (Zahlenstrahle).

The only

function that I miss there is that I cannot customize the appearance of

the axes (such as thickness or the lenth of the length markings on the

number line.)

It would be a great help if customizing the appearance of the axes would be possible.

You can make the axes thicker by making them "bold"

I know. But the difference is marginal... :-/

I think since many years, many user ask for this.

Until this is expanded, create your own lines:

.

1. xA=Line[(0,0), xAxis]
2. yA=Line[(0,0, yAxis)]
3. XTicks = Sequence[Segment[(n, 0.2), (n, -0.1)], n, floor(x(Corner[1]) / AxisStepX[]) AxisStepX[], x(Corner[2]), AxisStepX[]]
4. YTicks = Sequence[Segment[(-0.1, n), (0.2, n)], n, floor(y(Corner[1]) / AxisStepY[]) AxisStepY[], y(Corner[4]), AxisStepY[]]

and change the properties of this 4 objects (thickness, color etc.)

see attachment ownAxis01

.

a more sophisticated version in ownAxis02 (better when zooming, the ticks are in pixels)

It is possible to save this as standard (menu/options/save settings) and show or hidden this with a boolean.

Thanks, you helped me to solve my problem https://help.geogebra.org/t... :)

I would like to be able to show numbers every five or ten. I haven't found an option for that. (I want students to identify the number associated w/ a point on the number line.)
