This graph may be used when graphing different types of variables, such as advertising expenditures and cost of goods sold across all patterns in the file. You also have the option of graphing variables across a selected number of patterns. A single type of input, such as signal inputs from an electrocardiogram, would be more appropriately graphed in the Graph Variable Sets in a Pattern module.
This graph is also useful for graphing time series data. For example, if you have a data file that contains the price of gold, the price of the Swiss Franc, and the yen for the past 5 years, you could use this graph to display the price of gold for the past 5 years, or to compare the price of gold with the price of the Swiss Franc for the past 5 years.
Select the variables you want to graph by clicking on the variables in the scroll box. When selecting more than one variable, hold down the Control (Ctrl) key and click the mouse on the variable.
Click on the Graph button to display the graph.
Use the File Menu to select a file to graph, to print the graph, or write it to a file. Also use this menu to view the pattern file.
Use the Edit Menu to copy the graph to the clipboard or to clear the graph.
Use the Graph Menu to select the type of graph: Variable(s) Across All Patterns, Variable(s) Across N Patterns; Variable Sets in a Pattern, Two Variables Against Each Other, or High Low Close.
Use the Options Menu to decide whether to hide the Variable/Column List and display a larger graph, to change Graphics Attributes, Graph Scaling or to change Data Set Colors/Styles.
