For scatter plots and line+symbol plots, go to the Drop Lines tab.

Two Smart Skip options are added:

  • Smart Skip (Total Points Kept) keeps the number of points set and skips the other points based on data density and shape.

  • Smart Skip (% of Points Skipped) keeps the percentage of points set and skips the other points based on data density and shape.

System Variable @SMM determines the method used for Smart Skip:

0: Largest Triangle

1: Y-threshold

2: Data Distance Threshold

3: Douglas-Peucker-Hull

4: Largest Triangle for Segments(default)

LT controlled can be used to specify starting skip points. In the example below, 10 means start to perform skip from the 10th row in the workbook data.
