Preference

Description

Date Title on Output

Select this option to display the date and time the analysis occurred in your report windows. This option is deselected by default.

Data Table Title on Output

Select this option to display the name of the data table and notes, if there are any, at the top of the report. This option is deselected by default.

Hover Help

On some numeric output, JMP provides tooltip-style help when you circle the mouse over a result.

Select this option to see a tooltip where it is available. This option is selected by default.

Note: If you deselect this option, hover label graphs no longer appear.

Save table with report

Select one of the options from the menu to determine how a table is saved to a report:

Embed

When you save a report, the table is embedded into the report. Choose this option if you want to share the report with others. The data table that is stored in the report is reopened (unchanged) each time the report is opened. If you make changes to the table, they are not saved into the report unless you re-save the report.

Separate

When you save a report, the table is referenced in the report.

Prompt

When you save a report, you are prompted to specify how to save the report: either to embed the table within the report, or to add a reference to the table in the report. This is the default setting.

Laser pointer

JMP has a built-in laser pointer that enables you to visually emphasize parts of a report. The option is deselected by default. To turn it on, select a color for the laser pointer from the list.

Show conditional formatting

Conditionally formats the color of the text that represents the values. Available for correlation values, p-values, and factor pattern values.

Select one of the options from the menu:

Always

Conditional formatting is always applied to correlation values, p-values, and factor pattern values. This is the default setting.

Screen Only

Conditional formatting is always applied to correlation values, p-values, and factor pattern values. However, the conditional formatting does not show when the report is printed.

Never

Conditional formatting is never applied to correlation values, p-values, and factor pattern values.

Manage Rules

Creates custom conditional formatting rules that can be applied to numeric columns or matrices. See Use Conditional Formatting in Reports.

Note: Verify the Use an Asterisk with the PValue Format preference to ensure that the asterisk (*) is or is not used for any p-value conditions.

Use an Asterisk with the PValue Format

Select this option to display an asterisk (*) next to significant p-values. This option is selected by default.

Note: Verify any conditional formatting rules for PValue to ensure asterisk (*) is not used for any defined conditions.

JMP Live Timeout

Species the timeout value for publishing to JMP Live. The default time is 60 seconds.

Transparent background for report PNG images

Select this option to display a transparent background when a report is saved as a PNG file. This option is deselected by default.
