Distribution Platform Options

The red triangle menu next to Distributions contains options that affect all of the reports and graphs in the Distribution platform.

Uniform Scaling

Scales all axes with the same minimum, maximum, and intervals so that the distributions can be easily compared.


Changes the orientation of the histogram and the reports to horizontal and stacks the individual distribution reports vertically. Deselect this option to return the report window to its original layout.

Arrange in Rows

Enter the number of plots that appear in a row. This option helps you view plots vertically rather than in one wide row.

See Local Data Filters in Reports, Redo Menus in Reports, and Save Script Menus in Reports in Using JMP for more information about the following options:

Local Data Filter

Shows or hides the local data filter that enables you to filter the data used in a specific report.

Save Script

Contains options that enable you to save a script that reproduces the report to several destinations.

Save By-Group Script

Contains options that enable you to save a script that reproduces the platform report for all levels of a By variable to several destinations. Available only when a By variable is specified in the launch window.
