Thanks - this is definitely on my todo list.

You can simulate this by adding two X (or Y) axes to the plot.

Make the first one start at the left of the plot and set the "Max position" property to be between 0 and 1 (or drag the black marker at the right of the axis). Set the min and max of the axis to be the 1st interesting spectral range.

Make the second one start where the first started by setting the "min position property" to be that value or greater. Set the min and max to be the 2nd interesting range.

You then need to plot the data twice, setting the "X axis" setting for the plotter to be the 1st axis for the 1st plot and the 2nd axis for the 2nd plot.

This is a bit cumbersome, so it would be useful to have an option for breaking and axis.

I am working with spectra (like infrared, for example), and very often important information is contained in two spectral regions (for example spectrum is taken in 400-4000 cm-1 range, but I need 800-1800 and 2700-3500 cm-1 for x-axis), so I need that some spectral region was omitted (1800-2700 cm-1 in the above example) to leave more space to the remaining parts.
I remember seeing such feature in Origin, where the axis could be split, and the splitting position could be also varied (for example, 30% on the x-axis).

I really like Veusz and I want to continue using it. Thank you for your interest in humble user's opinion.
