Selecting Parts of the Input Data for Display

If you are in the Selection view, you can use the selection bars to decide what part of the 3D graph you want to display in the 2D graph.

The selection bars are the bars of text located below the 3D graph portion of the Selection view. The text in these bars lists either the names of rows or the names of columns in the 3D graph. The topmost bar gives the title for the rows (or columns) as a set. Compare the text in the selection bars with the labels in the 3D graph portion of the view.

  1. Experiment with the selection bars: click on the various bars and observe the effects: The bar you click on is highlighted and new data is displayed in the 2D graph portion of the view.
    1. When you click on the topmost bar, all the values in the 3D graph are displayed in the 2D graph.
    2. When you click on one of the lower bars, you are selecting a particular row (or column) of the 3D graph for display in the 2D graph. The values for that row (or column) appear in the 2D graph.
  2. If the selection bars contain the names of rows, try reading the column-names into the selection bars. (Or do the opposite, if the columns are already there).

The floor of the 3D graph has side panels. To read the column-names into the selection bars, click anywhere on the side panel on the right side of the 3D graph floor. (To read in the rows, click anywhere on the left-hand side panel.)
