Tic Style radio buttons:  Select one of the three styles for the tic marks.

Tic Size group:

Number or Label combo box:  Relative size of tic marks that correspond to axis numbers or labels.  Default is 0.4 times normal text.  Select one of the sizes in the list or enter a size.

Between combo box:  Relative size of tic marks between those that correspond to labels.  Default is 0.2 times normal text.  Select one of the sizes in the list or enter a size.

Ratio of X-Axis to Y-Axis edit box:  A value of 1 gives a square plot.  A value of 2 results in the X-Axis (bottom) being twice as long as the Y-Axis (left).
