2.4 Symbols

For scatterplots, the marker symbol can be selected from the above choice of geometrical shapes. Each symbol has its maximum dimension and active mouse picking area defined by the symbol size. Values up to 100 pixels can be set.

2.5 Flip Axes

Transposes the plot axes.

2.6 Re-plot

Re-plots the diagram maintaining any settings.

2.7 Defaults

Re-plots the diagram reverting to default plot settings.

2.8 Clear

Any selected entries in the refcode list are de-selected. A useful procedure when adding new entries to the list is to press Clear, so that only the new arrivals to the list are selected, leaving you in no doubt as to which of the entries in the refcode list are associated with the last selection.

The plot objects remain selected and highlighted in red despite the refcode being de-selected.

2.9 Set

Selects (highlights) all entries in the refcode list.

2.10 View Refcodes

As with the spreadsheet, all those refcodes which are currently selected will be passed on to the ASER viewer. See section 3 for further details.

2.11 Postscript

Copies the current display list (plot) to the PostScript editor. Be sure that the current display is definitely the one that you want to print as the PostScript editor has no options available for altering symbols, or for suppressing data etc. All of this must be done in the plot window using the functions available there.

See section 6 for details of the PostScript editor.

2.12 Refresh

Refreshes the display.

2.13 Help

Brings up the Help pop-up with information on the current display. See section 7 for more details about Help contents.

2.14 Select All

Selects all of the data points currently on the plot (highlights in red). This option will not select those points which have been previously suppressed. Selected refcodes are written to the scrolling refcode list.

2.15 De-select All

De-selects all currently selected data points. This does not effect suppressed plot objects.

2.16 Select Range

Allows the user to specify (by clicking on the two outer extremes of the desired range) a range of data points to be selected. This option will not select those points which have been previously suppressed. Selected refcodes are written to the scrolling refcode list.

2.17 De-select Range

Allows the user to specify (by clicking on the two outer extremes of the desired range) a range of data points to be de-selected. This does not effect suppressed plot objects.

2.18 Suppress Selected

Suppresses all currently selected data points/plot objects on the plot.

2.19 Suppress Un-selected

Suppresses all currently un-selected data points/plot objects on the plot.

2.20 Invert

Same function as the spreadsheet invert. All selected objects will be de-selected and all un-selected objects will become selected.

2.21 Restore

Restores the entire data-set, returning all suppressed entries back to the plot.
