Basic Usage
  1. Activate the worksheet for graphing and click the Graph Maker app icon.
    The app lists all columns of the worksheet with short names and an identifier, which by default is the corresponding long name and you can change it to Units, Comments or Parameters/User Defined Labels (if available).
  2. Drag and drop columns to create a graph.
    By default, it accepts only one Y column. Clear the checkbox before Y entry, you can drop more than one column there.
  3. Drag and drop columns to Panel to create a trellis plot.
    You can also drag columns between drop zones.
  4. Enable linear/polynomial fitting.
    Fitting is available for plot of some types. When fitting is enabled, you can easily customize the graph to show confidence/prediction bands and to show fitting results on the graph.
