This also doesn't work if your chart is in semi-log scale from what I can tell. Is there any other way to move the y-axis to the left? I can't figure it out.

This doesn't work if the X axis range is all negative. Automatic and max both force it to the right, in that case. They should have included "Left" or "Minimum" as an option for such cases
