Spin the 3D Scatterplot

You spin the 3D scatterplot report in four ways:

Click and drag an empty area on the 3D scatterplot. The 3D scatterplot spins in the direction you dragged the mouse.

Note: Click and drag on an empty area on the 3D scatterplot, not on an axis or data point. Dragging the axis rescales the axis. Dragging a data point only selects the point.

Slide the mouse wheel. The 3D scatterplot spins up and down only.

Hold down an arrow key. (Before using an arrow on the number keypad, verify that NUM LOCK is turned off.)

Hold down ESC. The 3D scatterplot spins left and right only.

In each case, the 3D scatterplot spins as long as you hold down the mouse button, arrow key, or Esc key. The spinning also continues as you slide the mouse wheel.

You can also spin the 3D scatterplot continuously as follows:

Click and drag: Hold down Shift, click and drag an empty area on the plot, and release Shift. The faster you drag the mouse, the faster the 3D scatterplot spins.

Mouse wheel: Hold down Shift, slide the wheel, and release the wheel. The 3D scatterplot spins up and down only.

Arrow keys: Hold down Shift press the arrow key, and release Shift.

Esc key: Hold down Shift and press Esc. The 3D scatterplot spins left and right only.

In addition to automatically spinning the plot, you can oscillate the plot. Hold down Shift and Ctrl and then click and drag the plot. The plot shakes up and down or left to right, depending on the direction in which you dragged the plot.

To stop the spinning or oscillating, click the plot or press Esc.
