how to change grid line number of intervals

Is it possible to control the number of intervals (or interval range) for grid lines in a line and stacked column chart?  For example, my chart's y-axis runs from 0 % to 100 %.  Power BI auto-calculates a grid line interval spacing of 20 percentage points (i.e., 0 %, 20 %, 40 %, 60 %, 80 %, 100 %).  I want the spacing to instead be 10 percentage points (i.e., 0 %, 10 %, 20 %, 30 %, etc.).

Sadly, this ability has been requested for years, but hasn't made it into Power BI yet.  I've seen some complciated work-arounds where people calcualte the resulting Line Chart Value Every X (5,10,15) units, to basically fake the ability with a Categorial Axis Type (this only works in very specific situations).
