Description Paco 2019-01-22 09:22:15 UTC
If date data is used for X axis you can use the chart type "XY (Scatter)" to show properly te scale. The problem is the scale intervals is too generic. If you use date data usually you do not want a regular interval in numerical sense but "date sense". What I want to say that you need intervals as weeks, months and years (even half-month). The week option is easy becouse you can set the interval in seven days, but if you set 30 days as interval the scale does not fit in months interval (or 15 days for  begin, mid and end of month). The same for the years.
So, when the axis is set as date axis should appear the appropiate options for time scales as days, months and years.

Actual Results:
It is not possible to choose an appropriate time intervals now for date axis

Expected Results:
When the axis is set as date axis should appear the appropiate options for time scales as days, months and years

Reproducible: Always
