Summary Distribution Diagram
The Summary Distribution Diagram displays the distribution of summary values and indicates which values are already filtered out.
The horizontal axis shows numeric values. They can be decimal or integer, depending on the data type of summary values. By default, the minimum and maximum values on this axis match the smallest and largest summary values respectively.
The diagram displays bars, whose bases break the horizontal axis into a number of even ranges. The height of each bar indicates the number of summary values that fall into the corresponding range.
Dark blue bar regions correspond to visible summary values, while light blue regions correspond to hidden values.
In addition, the diagram displays two constant lines. The first one indicates the maximum number of summary values that fall into one range (the height of the highest bar). The second one indicates the same number among the visible values (the height of the highest dark blue bar).
If summary values are integers, and their minimum and maximum values are close enough, so that no more than one value falls into each range, the diagram displays pins instead of bars. In this instance, selection thumbs snap to these pins.
