(continuation of the "inspired from xmgrace" series):
If you look at the "Labels" tab in the Plot dialog, you'll notice that there is (a lot of) unused room in the line with "Numbers". So I thought I might give ideas of how we could "fix" this :-)

1) Add a spinbox with "Angle" to allow rotating the labels. This is useful when you want to plot more labels (or they are long) without overlap. I must admit the current labels are nice and do not overlap too often, but this wish is a nice (required ?) complement to #86605
2) In the same spirit, Grace has an option to "stagger" labels (i.e. write them at 2 alternating heights) which can also turn out to be useful. We could add a checkbox (or spinbox if an int can be useful there ?)
