To change the color or thickness of one axis. In rare cases, you may want to change the color or thickness of one axis and not the other(s). Or you may want to make one axis white (or whatever your page background color is) to make it essentially invisible. To do this, select the axis, drop the Change menu and choose Selected Object. Then change the color or thickness in the Format Object dialog.
