"Hard specify" axes limits?

Is there no way to "hard code" axes limits? For example, with reference to

https://www.geogebra.org/3d...

since almost all the graph is below the x-y plane, displaying mostly the positive z-axis is a waste of visual space; I've tried various ways--the move tool, perusing the settings, many, many times--to make it so the z-axis runs from, for example, -4 to 0.5, but haven't been able to get that done (and yet, it's such a basic, basic need--and every other graphing calculator I've ever used makes it relatively easy to figure out how to do it--I can't imagine that GeoGebra hasn't "exposed" this capability). Please help! Thanks!

As far as I know it's impossible to do it using General settings, but you can use the ZoomIn command, that defines the cuboid in which your surface is displayed. So, in your case, maybe something like

ZoomIn(0,0,-4,6,6,5)


might do the trick.

Now it seems that the autocompletion of commands in GeoGebra 3D app doesn't show that this syntax is available also for 3D. I'm now checking the other versions and asking the devs to add this command to the autocompletion list.

Autocompletion issue fixed, the command will be ready in the autocompletion list with the next release.

The full axes settings will be implemented in the next months :)

That worked splendidly, thanks! (I keep forgetting that GeoGebra, for "fine work," is largely command-driven; for example, I next wanted to add a segment from (1,0,0) to (0,1,0); I tried several algebraic-entry approaches before I remembered the Segment command! Hopefully these experiences will help me remember better going forward.

no dices qué dispositivo usas

si usas un PC puedes pulsar shift (mantenlo pulsado) haz clicks con el boton izquierdo del ratón hasta que aparezca una flecha gris señalando arriba y abajo, entonces arrastra con el ratón

si usas un movil pon el dedo en una zona vacia de la pantalla y espera un poco, hazlo varias veces hasta que puedas mover arriba y abajo la zona de graficos

tambien puedes usar zoomin https://wiki.geogebra.org/e...
