Numbers bars change size when dragging

I have a chart with numbers bars and I drag the chart back in time and forward in time using the hand tool. When I do this, the size of the bars gets huge which causes me to lose my place and wastes allot of time. Is there a way to keep the bars at the same scale no matter where I scroll to?

There are a few different options depending on what you want to have happen.

If you want to lock the scale at a specific place and size, so it will not move unless you manually move it, then refer to the following:
Chart Scale and Scale Adjusting: Using Fixed Values for Top and Bottom of Scale Range

If, instead, you want to keep a fixed range of the scale, but still have it move up and down based on the position of the last bar displayed, then refer to the following:
Chart Scale and Scale Adjusting: Using a Constant Range Scale

There are other Constant Range Scale options, so also review those to see if there is a different one that will fit better for what you want.
