Support Forum Topic: Using other time ranges in a custom chart

I was asked this question over the weekend:

> I’m time shifted about 8
> hours, so my normal bedtime reading is taken between 2:30 and
> 4:30 AM (or thereabouts), and my waking up reading any time
> between 9 and noon.
> …
>  Would it be possible to a) read the category tags
> (since I’ve set an am and pm category) or b) define the times?

Yes, you can do either.

To do this, click on the “View charts” task then click on the “Custom” tab.

You could build your own custom chart, but an easier way to do it would be to copy then edit the existing “AM vs PM” chart. To do this, click on the “Manage custom charts” task to open the “Manage Custom Charts” dialog. Select the “AM vs PM” chart in the list, and then click on the “copy the chart” task below the list.

Give the chart a new name and description so that you can recognize it later.

Then click on each “Series” entry in the “Chart Layout” tree. For each series entry, click on the “Change” button next to the “Source” field. This opens the “Plot Series Source Wizard”. Go to the second page of the wizard by clicking “Next”. You should then see the filter. For the “AM vs PM” chart the time filter is set to either “AM readings” or “PM readings”. Click on the time filter link to change it to a specific time range, or click on the category filter link to
change it to a category.

This should do the trick!
