Assign Colors or Markers to Rows

If you assign a color to a row, the points representing the values in that row are colored in the plot.

If you assign a marker to a row, the point is replaced with the marker in the plot.

You can also assign colors or markers based on column values.

Assign a Color to Rows

Assigning a color to selected rows means that the points in plots appear in the color that you select. In the data grid, the active color assigned to a row appears next to the row number.

To assign rows a color

1. Highlight one or more rows that you want to assign a color to.

2. Right-click the highlighted rows and select Rows > Colors.

3. Select one of the available colors.

Tip: To clear an assigned color from the selected rows, assign the color black.

Add Markers to Rows

To replace the standard points in plots with a marker, use the JMP markers palette. In the data table, these markers also appear next to row numbers.

1. Highlight one or more rows that you want to apply the marker to.

2. Right-click the selected rows and select Markers, and then select the marker shape.

Select Other to create custom markers. You can type alphabetic characters, numerals, and other keyboard symbols.

Tip: To return to the default marker, select the initial dot marker.

Assign Colors or Markers to Rows Based on Column Values

You can assign colors or markers to your data table rows based on the values found in a particular column. For example, in a column called Sex, you could assign all rows whose value is F a red circle marker. All rows whose value is M could have a green plus marker. These colors and markers replace the default black dot in plots and appear next to its row number in the data table.

To assign colors or markers to rows based on column values

1. Select Rows > Color or Mark by Column.

2. Select the column to color and or mark.
