JMP Tip: Select All Points in a JMP Graph at Once

Need to select all of the points on a graph? Rather than trying to select them all individually, just use Ctrl-A (Windows) or Command-A (Macintosh) to select them all at once. This time-saving feature is very useful, such as when you are giving a presentation and need to make the point size larger.
