You use the wrong chart type. You have to select XY chart instead of

Perfect! That fixed it. However, two things:

1) Given that it's possible to add an x-axis to a line
   chart, it's not clear to an uninitiated user that x-axes
   don't belong in line charts. Does anyone else find this
   UI confusing?

axis belong to chart, they might be shared by several plots.

2) Within the tree control for xy-charts, I expected the
   x-axis field (the field where one enters x-axis data) to
   be under Graph -> Chart1 -> X-Axis1. Yet it's under Graph
   -> PlotXY1 -> Series1. Again, doesn't this strike anyone
   as a counterintuitive UI?

you can set extrema and ticks in axis, but the x values are series
dependent. Several series can use different x values sets, so these
values are in series, they cannot be elsewhere.

I might comment more generally that tree controls are hard
for a lot of people to grasp, and that they don't seem to
belong here especially well. But that's more debatable.
