10.2. Making a time selection by dragging the mouse

You can select a time interval to view in more detail by dragging the mouse over the chart. As you drag the mouse the time selection is shown by highlighting in the region in the chart. When you release the mouse, a new chart will be displayed for the Custom period between the chosen start and end time sand using the smallest possible interval size (ie the most detailed data that can be displayed for the period). Since this new chart is using a Custom time selection, the new chart will be static and will not be updated as more data becomes available.

If you find that a mouse drag is detected when you intend to click on a bar to select a specific interval in a Top N chart, you can use Control+left mouse button (or on a Mac Command+left mouse button) to select the bar..
