Axis titles by default
I feel like axis titles and possibly the chart title should be turned on by default. My reasons are as follows:
1. It is easier to get rid of titles that you do not want than to add titles that you do want.
2. Any graph that is not quick and dirty requires titles to know what is being plotted.
Thanks for the feedback. We’ll consider this in our next round of planning. Please continue to vote on this feature idea.

I agree. I've just been working with an Excel document that a colleague sent, where they had labelled the axes of a scatterplot manually, and got them the wrong way round, a mistake that would have been avoided if the axis labels were included by default. A graph without axis labels is bad practice anyway and practically useless for sharing with others

I cannot think of a single figure that should not include axis titles. Excel requires several clicks to add axis titles to every single chart that I make and it would be incredibly helpful to not have to do this. Many versions ago, Excel included axis titles by default.
