Happy 2018 Golden Software users! It's a fresh new year, and we have a fresh new version of Grapher to go along with it!
We've been very busy bees over the last few months, and Grapher 13 is loaded with new features to help you create publication-ready graphs in less time than ever! Our biggest highlights include true Piper plots and classed Piper plots (no more workarounds for you hydrologists!), a vastly improved Graph Wizard and user interface so creating beautiful images is a snap, and new fit curves and statistical analysis options – R and p-values, anyone?
Improved Graph Wizard
The new and improved Graph Wizard allows you to preview and select the right data file, select the desired plot while customizing what portion of the data to use, and select a few visually appealing properties without being bogged down by all of the available options. These updates allow you to quickly and easily create a single- or multi-plot graph with pleasing defaults. Whether you're an old-hand at Grapher or using it for the first time, you'll appreciate how much simpler it is to create eye-catching plots with the Graph Wizard.
Redesigned User InterfaceWe've been contacted regularly by Grapher users in the past asking how to perform certain tasks, or to request functionality that already exists. It was clear to us that some parts of Grapher were not intuitive, or were difficult to figure out. Taking that feedback onboard, we've redesigned the entire Grapher user interface; grouping similar commands, rearranging the ribbon, resizing the managers, and updating the docking layout. We're confident that these changes will save you a lot of time and frustration!
New Fit Curves and Statistics
Now you can gain even more insight into your data with two new Grapher fit curves: LOESS and RMA. We've also added three new general fit curve statistics - p value, Pearson's R, and standard error of coefficients – so you can take your analysis to the next level!
Other new features include:
- Worksheet function updates
- Multithreaded gridding
- Coordinates now in double precision inches
- New import file types
- Improved date/time handling
- Rotate images
- Color pie/donut plots and multi-line graphs with a colormap gradient
- Complex line style support
- All new defaults and colormaps
