Double-click an axis to reveal the axis control window shown below. The window enables you to change the Minimum, Maximum, Increment, and tick mark label Format.
Like other JMP graphs, the axes can be adjusted, stretched, and compressed using the grabber tool. Place the cursor over an axis to change it to the grabber.
By default, the plot has lights shining on it. There are eight control knobs on the plot for changing the position and color of the lights. This is useful for highlighting different parts of a plot and creating contrast. Four of the eight knobs are show below.
If you are plotting a Sheet, points, right-click the sheet and select Sheet Properties to reveal a window for changing the sheet properties.
Enables you to show or hide the top or bottom of a surface. If Above only or Below only is selected, the opposite side of the surface is darkened.
Enables you to color the surface using a solid color, or continuous or discrete gradients. If a gradient is chosen, the Show Legend option appears when you right-click the surface.
Enables you to turn on or off a surface mesh, for either the X or Y directions or both. If turned on, the Mesh Color option is revealed allowing you to change the color.
Enables you to turn on or off a contour grid, either above, below, or on the surface. If turned on, the Contour Color option is revealed allowing you to change the color.
limits the range of the plot to the range of the data in the Point Response Column, if one is activated. If checked, this essentially restricts the plot from extrapolating outside the range of the data in the Point Response Column.
The equivalent JSL command for this option is Clip Sheet( Boolean ). You can send this message to a particular response column by appending the number of the response column. For example, Clip Sheet2( 1 ) limits the range of the plot to the range of the data of the second response column. See the Scripting Index in the JMP Help menu for an example.
If you are plotting an Isosurface, right-click the surface and select Surface Properties to reveal a similar window. You can modify the surface color, opacity, and toggle a mesh.
Provides for faster rendering of the display. For example, if the plot redraws slowly when rotating, this option can help it redraw faster.
