You can configure the color, line width, label type, scroll and scale properties for the date/time and value axes. You can also choose whether to display time on the date/time axis using local or UTC format.

The default span is used by the Process Analyst when the Operator or User clicks the Reset to Default Span button, or if the pen is added in pen unlocked mode, or if the pen is the first one added to a display.
If you're setting the span value as a default setting for new pens, the new span value is inherited by news pens created.
Note: The Scale and Scroll options are also available on the right-click (context) menu.
