Options for Axes, Variable Labels, or Graph Titles

Right-clicking on axes, variable labels, or graph titles shows options that are specific to Graph Builder and general options: Graph Builder options appear above the line, and general options appear below the line. The following options are specific to Graph Builder:

Alignment

Changes the graph title alignment.

Span

Changes the width of the graph title span.

Combine Scales

Combines scales when you have multiple variables in the same zone. Auto does the following:

If there are 4 or more variables on one axis and no variables on the other axis, elements that support parallel mode are combined as parallel scales. If all variables are continuous and overlapping, Parallel Merged is used.

If all variables are categorical, use Nested.

In addition, consider the following:

Merged creates one scale that covers all variables.

Nested creates a nested scale with one level per variable.

Parallel Merged is for parallel coordinates with a shared scale. You can use this option with the following elements: Points, Contour (Violin), Histogram, Box Plot and Parallel.

Parallel Independent is for parallel coordinates with independent scales. You can use this option with the following elements: Points, Contour (Violin), Histogram, Box Plot and Parallel.

Remove

Removes the variable from the zone.

Swap

Switches a variable from one zone to another. Select the variable that you want to switch places with.

Move Right

(Appears only if you have more than one variable in the Y zone.) Creates a second Y axis (on the right) for the variable that you select.

Order By

(Appears only if you have categorical variables in the X or Y zone.) Orders the levels of a categorical variable. See Order the Levels of a Categorical Variable.
