Dear JMP® User,
Happy spring! Christopher Morley wrote in his book, John Mistletoe, “April prepares her green traffic light and the world thinks Go.” As the warmer weather begins to arrive and the flowers begin to bloom, it is time to get out and find a training center near you. We offer JMP® training in more than 20 of our training centers. And if you would rather take training from your home or office, we have Live Web courses that will meet your needs.
We now have courses scheduled through the end of the year, so plan in advance and get the Early Bird discount. All you have to do is register and pay for a public or Live Web course at least four weeks in advance and you will receive 10 percent off!
Looking forward to having you in a JMP course soon!

Wayne Levin resides in Toronto, Canada. He has undergraduate and master's degrees in engineering, with an emphasis on statistics and research methods. Levin has been a JMP user since the mid-1990s and a JMP instructor since 1997. His JMP repertoire expanded with the introduction of the JMP Scripting Language (JSL) in JMP 4.0. As a result, Levin was able to combine two of his passions, analytics and programming. He is one of our most sought-after instructors, and students always want Levin to return to their company. In addition to teaching JMP and Six Sigma courses, Levin also develops dynamic illustrations using JMP to convey statistical concepts. He is founder and president of Predictum Inc., a company that specializes in developing analytical applications using JSL to integrate JMP and SAS® Business Intelligence. In his spare time, Levin likes to spend time with his wife and three kids at home or at their lake cottage, which is powered by solar panels that were first installed when he started as a JMP instructor. In addition, he is involved in a variety of community initiatives.
Tips and Tricks
Do you find yourself turning off the outlier box plot or turning on the normal quantile plot often when you open the Distribution platform with a continuous variable? (Feel free to substitute your favorite platform and its options in the previous example.) Those changes are necessary because the factory default settings don’t entirely suit you. Most platform options are customizable in the preferences. You can access these options by selecting File > Preferences (or by pressing CTRL-K) on Windows, or JMP > Preferences (or pressing command-comma) on Macintosh. Select Platforms in the category list on the left-hand side of the dialog that opens.
Note: You can always return to the original preferences by clicking the Reset Platform to Defaults button.
(Tip for advanced users: You can script the alteration of preferences, make different sets of preferences, save the script as a new menu item, toolbar button or OnOpen table property for easy access. You can even include this feature in your jmpStart.jsl script to run each time you start JMP.)
