I agree that the presentation of charts could be improved.

gnuplot has some licensing and technical issues which are problematic.  However I'm looking at other alternatives to produce better charts.  See https://savannah.nongnu.org/p/gsegrafix-experimental

The chars generated from pspp not have a good presentation and professional finish, making them difficult to use for reporting.

Another alternative is to use other way to improve the charts <like libreoffice>.

I hope developers pspp or other volunteers to help the project, consider this request for improvement.
