Return To Home Position

Returns the graph to its home position (the initial position if not reset).

Set As Home Position

Sets the current view as the home position for the displayed graph.

Show All

Sets the view so that the entire graphical space is visible. This may include blank space around the graph if a Genstat FRAME statement was used to specify a window occupying less than the full [0,1]x[0,1] square.

This view is the initial default.

Set Centre Point

Each point that is selected will be highlighted in a different colour. Clicking on a point a second time will remove it from the selection.

When you exit this mode a new data set is created containing the chosen points. The name of the new data set is the same as the original data set but with an apostrophe added to the end. You can then edit the new data set in the Graphics Editor.
