Change the Orientation of a JMP Formula

By default, JMP determines the size of a formula and displays it in the Formula Editor in the best orientation (horizontally or vertically). However, if you create a long formula, you might want to display it in a different layout.

To change a formula’s orientation, follow these steps:

1. Build a formula.

2. Highlight an argument or formula.

3. Right-click what you have highlighted.

4. Select Orientation.

5. Select from the Orientation options: Best, Horizontal, or Vertical.
