Surface Plot Platform Options

The Surface Plot red triangle menu contains the following options:

Control Panel

Shows or hides the Control Panel, which includes the controls for Appearance, Independent Variables, and Dependent Variables.

Scale response axes independently

Scales response axes independently. See Launch the Surface Plot Platform.

Fit to Window

Determines whether the plot is resized as you resize the report window.

Auto (default)

Bases the scaling on the contents of the plot. For example, a plot with By variables or used as a Surface Profiler in a Fit Model platform does not stretch to fit the resized window; the plot extends beyond the viewing area.


Always fits the plot inside the window.


Prevent the plot from resizing.
