Lessen the space above the plotted area

Above the plotted area is the Title of the graph.
I can drag the title closer to the plotted area but the area above the plotted area remains the same.
I am looking to build a dashboard type page (wihtout the use of the camera tool), so I want to minimize the area above the plotted area without minimizing the size of the chart.

you can re-size the Plot Area. Select the plot area and drag the sizing handles. See screenshot.

Hello Teylyn,
Are you able to eliminate completely the white area above te grid lines - where the title of the chart lays.

No, you can't go up all the way. There will always be a small space left. You can further reduce that space if you don't have any Y Axis labels. See image

Thank Teylyn.
I kept resizing the chart itself and then everything resized proportionally, but the trick as you mention is to resize only the plotted section.
