Show Roles

Using the Show Roles option in the red triangle menu, you can make changes to your existing variables without having to relaunch the platform and start your analysis over.

Follow the instructions in Example of a Dynamic Bubble Plot to produce the report window shown in Figure 5.6. (The colors are the JMP default colors.)

Figure 5.6 Example of Bubble Plot with Show Roles Selected 

Change the Variable Assigned to a Role

To change the variable assigned to a role, click a blue underlined role name. For example, in Figure 5.6, to change the Coloring variable from Region to Country, proceed as follows:

1. Click the Coloring link.

The Select column for Coloring window appears.

2. Click Country.

3. Click OK.

Country now replaces Region as the Coloring variable in the bubble plot.

Remove a Variable

To remove an existing variable from the bubble plot, make sure that nothing is selected in the Select column for <Role> window, and click OK. For example, in Figure 5.6, to remove the Sizes variable (Pop), proceed as follows:

1. Click the Sizes link.

The Select column for Sizes window appears.

2. Ensure that nothing is selected. If a variable is selected, deselect it by holding down the Ctrl key and clicking on the variable.

3. Click OK.

The Sizes role now appears with an empty box.

Note: The X and Y variables can be changed only and cannot be removed.

Add a Variable

Once you have removed an existing variable from the bubble plot, there are two ways to add a new variable:

Click the blue underlined role name. See Change the Variable Assigned to a Role.

In the data table, click the variable in the column panel, and drag it into the empty role box.
