Is the report using absolute values to draw the graph?

Hello,

I was trying to build a silly report, just to se how my overall wealth changed over the time, when I saw strange shape on the histogram. I was reviewing what the oddness could be, and try to build a simplify one excluding my real estate account, to avoid noise.

So this is the chart for the last 10 years of my (sort of obscured) overall wealth excluding my real estate assets (hence the filter):

It might looks 'normal', but the truth is that the red box is marking negative values (my debts were greater than my savings), while the green box shows positive values. Yes, something good happened by the end of 2015, despite in the chart it looks like a pretty bad time.

Is this the expected behavior using absolute values instead of real ones to draw the chart? And it is not actually just the 'histogram', because I also tried 'Point', 'Stack of Columns', 'Line' and 'Stacked Area' with same result.

And btw ... is there any way to add/edit filters to an already existing report? Initially I simply opened the @report' from the 'pages' tab, and then changed time frame, columns, rows, etc. But to exclude the real estate account I had to go to the full list of accounts, select both open and closed excluding the real estate one, and then build the report from there. It would have been nice to be able to add a filter in the already created report, but couldn't find a way.

Thanks

Hi,

You have an option on the contextual menu of the graph to show all values in positive or not.

Regards.
