Google is adding new features to help you customize chart axes in Google Sheets and better visualize your data in charts. The new options are:

  • Add major and minor tick marks to charts.
  • Customize tick mark location (inner, outer, and cross) and style (color, length, and thickness).
  • Set the precise numeric spacing between major and minor axis ticks or grid lines.
  • Choose to show or remove the line that marks the axis.

See how this works in the images below:
