9.3.7.18 The (Plot Details) Shape List Tab


You can use this tab to create/customize/load a increment shape list. This tab will be available:

  • for 2D plots when the symbol shape is controlled by Increment List or Indexing (i.e. shape is controlled by values in a column of data) in the Symbol tab, the Custom Construction is chosen as Geometric, and the Shape drop-down is set as a data column or Increment.

  • for 3D XYY/XYZ Bar plots when the bar shape is controlled by Increment List or Indexing (i.e. shape is controlled by values in a column of data) in the Pattern tab.

Use custom increment list

This check box in unchecked by default, and in that case, the built-in increment list is used.

If this check box is selected, the Shapes list will show, and you can customize it.

Shapes List

You can customize, save and reload the shapes list, and more options are provided in the context menu.

Customize a Shape

For each row in the list, click the triangle button and select a built-in symbol/bar shape.

Rearrange the shape list

You can move, add or delete selected row(s) in the shape list and flip shape list, by the same methods you would use when rearranging the color list.

Save and Load Increment List

You can right click and choose the context menu to save or load an increment list, by the same methods you would use when you save and load an increment list in the color list tab.

Copy and Paste Increment List

To apply a custom shape increment list to other plots, you can right-click on the list and select Copy. Then go to the Shape List tab of other plots, right-click on the list and select the Paste option.
