What do apply_extents and apply_ranges opts do?


I did see the description of these options in the docs, but I’m still confused as to their effect in practice.

apply_ranges = param.Boolean(default=True, label=’Apply ranges’)

    Whether to compute the plot bounds from the data itself.

This sounds straightforward, but I’m not sure how this plays out in the context of overlays when applied either on the overlay itself or on individual elements.

apply_extents = param.Boolean(default=True, label=’Apply extents’)

    Whether to apply extent overrides on the Elements

Here I don’t know what extent overrides refer to.

In short, I would like to know in which situations it’s better to set one or the other to False.

Many thanks
