I'm making an area graph showing changes through the years and have data for each month. But as you can see from the x-axis, there's no use labelling each month on the x-axis. Is there a quick way on illustrator to only display 1/12 X-axis labels? 

Thanks.

Thank you for the sample file.

 

You may already have discovered that Illustrator's graph technologies are rather nostalgic highlights that once were breathtaking in 1995.

 

Apart from that, you could just modify the entries in the first column of your graph data, such that it would only show the desired months or years.

Thanks for the reply Kurt. The numbers in the file is a bit sensitive. Let me quickly make a file with random numbers (just to be safe).

What I want to do is to show only a certain intervals of X-axis labels.

Oh damn... I have a really long list of data and was hoping it wouldn't come to that. Thanks for the help.
