My data box does not move with the chart cross hairs. The only way to get the data box to update is to move the last bar on the chart to the position I want to analyze, which is needless to say very bad.

I'm sure this is my fault, some setting somewhere, but I have not been able to figure it out.

Looking for help.

On a side note, whenever I open the data values box, it always opens in a tiny like 5px x 5px window that is smaller than even the 'x' close button icon, I have to grab it and resize and move it. Every. Single. Time. Help!?

Hi Mike,

I use the "Tool Value Window" button (also accessible from the Window menu).




This opens a box, similar to the Chart Values window but it changes the values with the location of the cross hair.

Mine is a "normal" sized window though, not sure about your small window issue.

Thanks, that one does move with the crosshairs. Interesting that there are two different chart value windows.

Agreed. It seems both needlessly redundant and an unnecessarily superfluous.
