The new Data Filter replaces the current Criteria Filter in Grapher, and offers a lot more flexibility and functionality. Users can:
This new feature allows you to easily offset any overlapping labels in your plot - it can even be used on multiple plots at once. This is a big time saver if you frequently work with clustered or dense data. After the plot labels are dispersed, you can still fine-tune individual label positions with manual click-and-drag editing options.
Up until now the Class Plot Legend for text classes has always been ordered in the order of items in the worksheet, Now you can re-order text classes using whatever system you like. This has been a highly requested new feature and we're happy to bring it you with this release of Grapher Beta!
This new label formatting option converts your numeric data in the worksheet to percentage format, and adds the % sign suffix. This means less time spent manually converting decimal data to percentages in the worksheet.
Easily arrange your plots, text, and shapes on the page by using the new Align to Margins and Distribute in Margins commands. These new tools will help you center objects on the page, assist with creating evenly spaced matrix layouts, and prepare your plots for publication.
6. Status Bar improvements
The Status Bar now shows the position of the mouse cursor in the units of the selected plot axes. If your axes are in Date/Time format, Grapher Beta will match the formatting you have chosen for the axis labels, even down to hours/minutes/seconds.
7. Digitize on your plots in Date/Time format of your axes
You can now also digitize on your plot, and the digitized points will be recorded in the Date/Time format of your axis labels. This removes the need to convert from Julian dates back into your preferred Date/Time format for post-processing.
8. The Worksheet Manager now closes unused data tabs automatically
Reduce clutter in the Worksheet Manager! When data files are unlinked from the plot, they are automatically closed in the Worksheet Manager. This new feature will help keep you organized!
