The ability to have steps on parameters starting from the minimum value, and not from zero points.
Example: There is a value range from -10.5 to 10.5 and want to analyze the value range from - 0.5 to + 0.5. Setting the step size 1 gives bins "bars" -1 to 0 and 0 to +1. setting the step size 0.5 gives the expected result but in two bars not only in one.

The workaround is to create a set with the bars that need to be analyzed ( -.05 and 0) then add them to the viz.


The ability to have the steps in the parameter starting from minimum values instead of from zero in histogram is not built in the product.
