Changing the bucket count

The default number of histogram buckets is 10, but you can easily change the number of buckets.

To change the number of histogram buckets, click Settings in the VISUAL menu, open the Basic section, and adjust the selector for the Bucket count option. The default value is 10.

The following image contrasts the appearance of a histogram with 10 buckets and a histogram with 20 buckets. Notice that as the number of buckets doubles, the range of values covered by each bucket is reduced by half.
