Grapher 8의 새로운 기능과 특징

After compiling a list of the new features in Grapher 8, we chose a small sample of these new features to display here. Of course, these are only a few of the many features available in Grapher 8!

New Graph Type!

Compare options and groups with the new radar plot!
Grapher 8 has added a new radar (spider) plot! This exciting new graph has a similar appearance to other radial graphs, except there are multiple radial axes and no angle axis. A radar graph is a graphical method of displaying multiple variables. Comparisons between multiple radar plots typically show trends in your data.
As with every detail in every graph with Grapher, you can change every portion of your plot to fit your own preferences for eye-catching graphics every time!
Create these informative graphs with striking colors to enhance their display! Add text, labels, and color to make your graph more meaningful! Make colors partially transparent to see all your data!

Transparency!

Enhance the appearance of your graphs by making using color gradients and transparency!
See all your data, even with plots overlap! Make lines, symbols, and fill colors transparent. You have full control over the level of transparency!

Add a graph magnifier to your graphs to enlarge important sections!

Change the axis properties inside the magnifier! Zoom in on any area in your graph!
Magnifiers can be added to show graph items in an enlarged view. When using a graph magnifier, the magnifier has new axes that can be controlled independently from the whole graph! Move the magnifier to any location in your graph or anywhere on the page.

Add a Drawing Zoom Inset to enlarge all objects!

Add an inset zoom to show drawn objects small portions of graphs.
Drawing insets work similar to graph magnifiers, except that all items on the page are magnified, including text, drawn objects, and images. In addition, graph types that cannot be used to create a graph magnifier can be enlarged with a drawing inset zoom. All properties of the inset zoom can be altered, to fit your needs.

Limit your Ternary Graph to any portion of the whole!

Limit your ternary diagram to any section of the plot that you desire! Is all your data in one area of the graph? Zoom in on the section using the dynamic ternary resizers to display only that area!
Change limits on a ternary graph to zoom in on the desired area!

Link All Text to a Worksheet Cell!

Often you have information in your worksheet that needs to be displayed on your graph. Now, there is a quick and easy way to add text to your graph directly from your worksheet cell. When the worksheet changes, so does the graph!
Now, all text blocks can be linked to a worksheet, including axis titles, graph titles, headers and footers!

Easy Legend Customizations!

Legends have been significantly updated in Grapher 8. You can add link any portion of the legend to a worksheet cell.
Display your legend however you desire!
You can show labels on the left or right. You can have multiple columns. You can set the distance between the title, the rows, and the columns separately. You can also display the fill color under the curve.

Display multiple different shapes or any bitmap image for bar charts!

Use any shape or image for bar charts boxes!
Grapher 8 has added even more appeal to bar charts! Display your data as normal boxes or as spindles, cones, diamonds. Or, create your own image and use it. You can set the number of images to display, and whether a full image is shown.

Display a single line plot with different colors between points!

Sometimes, you need a different color line to emphasize data in a particular section of your graph. Grapher 8 has made creating this emphasized section easier than ever! Simply include the color definition in the worksheet. The graph can then use this worksheet column for both the line and symbol color.
Use different colors for different section of your plot. Have the line color different or the line and symbol color.

More compatibility with non-US formats!

Set the decimal comma and the thousands delimiter in the Label Format dialog.
Grapher 8 has added an easy way to show commas as decimal separators or periods as thousands separators.

Customize Your Colors!

Select the exact color and shade you want!
Easily create just the color you want! Choose from a standard palette of colors, select to match any color on the screen, or easily create custom colors!

Additional New Features!

  • Digitizing from a ternary plot gives 3 normalized values.
  • Plot labels centered on symbols.
  • The math text editor can be used for labels prefixes and suffixes.
  • Fill gradients can now be drawn as a radial gradient.
  • Improvements made to no 1x setting. Zeros now do not have a x100 label.
  • New option for placing axes titles has been added. There is now an option for which side of the axis the title should be placed.
  • Function plot equations can now be longer.
  • Mouse wheel functions have been added. Click and drag the mouse wheel for Pan. Roll the mouse wheel in and out to zoom in and out. Press CTRL and the mouse wheel button to scroll the screen.
  • New fill patterns have been added.
  • Import/export system has been improved.
  • Log program actions for crash reports.

Comments From Beta Testers!

  • Grapher is a fine product. I had experiences with other charting-tools but not with Grapher. Grapher is superior in the sense, that it takes less time to produce various scientific charts.
  • "Overall, I'm very impressed with the improvements! Well done on improving a great bit of software."
  • "I like most the ability to adjust everything in the graph!"
  • Transparency is an excellent feature. I am imagining all the possibilities for it. My figures look 100% better using a transparent gradient fill.
  • "I like the wide variety of graph types available, and the intuitive feel of the program."
  • The Graph Magnifier is a wonder tool, and infinitely adjustable, it seems.
  • "The program keeps getting better & better."
  • This is a great graphing program! As an engineer, I like the exact control over the scale of the axes, the large number of available graph types, and the ability to place a number of graphs on one page. The program allows almost infinite control over all the properties of each graph element, while still being easy to use, with a consistent (and predictable) set of properties from one element to the next.
  • "Grapher is the best graphing software out there that can be used in any situation."

Grapher 7의 새로운 기능과 특징

After compiling a list of the new features in Grapher 7, we chose a small sample of these new features to display here. Of course, these are only a few of the many features available in Grapher 7!

New Graph Types!

New graph types in Grapher 7 include class scatter plots, polar class scatter plots, 3D XYZ class scatter plots, and stiff plots!
The new Class Scatter Plot is a 2D graph that shows your data as scattered symbols on an XY graph. Symbols are set for each "class." Classes are based on a data column in your worksheet. As with every detail in every graph with Grapher, you can change every portion of your plot to fit your own preferences for eye-catching graphics every time!
Similar to the class scatter plot, the Polar Class Scatter Plot allows you to have different symbols for each class. Easily choose the number of classes and symbols for each class!

Alter the polar plot to display any tick mark labels you desire. In addition, you can add other plots to your graph for more detailed information!
Similar to the class scatter plot, the 3D XYZ Class Scatter Plot allows you to have different symbols for each class. 3D XYZ class scatter plots give you an easy way to display four variables on a 3D plot, showing potential trends in data.
Easily choose the number of classes and symbols for each class! Save classes to a file to use over and over again with different plots.
Hydrologists have yet another tool to create more of an impact with their data! Stiff Plots can now be created in Grapher 7! Create these informative graphs with striking colors to enhance their display! Add text, labels, and color to make your graph more meaningful! Add background colors to any graph for stunning presentation quality graphics!

Added Script Recorder!

Grapher always allows you to create your graphs exactly like you want them. Now, as you create the graphs, use the convenient script recorder to quickly create a script with the steps needed to recreate the graph exactly. The new script recorder and script manager windows are located conveniently directly inside Grapher. Never again spend long amounts of time recreating graphs or laboring over scripting languages. Graphs are efficiently created over and over again with ease!

Create Multiple Symbols on Scatter Plots!

Grapher 7 has added the ability to create multiple symbols on a single scatter plot! Choose to either use different symbols for every point from a table, use a worksheet column to specify the symbol, or use repeating symbols from a table. With either the repeating symbols or the varied symbols, you choose the symbol style, color, and size!

Take Control of Bar Chart Widths!

Grapher now has the option to create bar charts where the width of the bars can be set. Choose from 3 different methods of setting the width: from a percentage column, in page units, or using the current default width settings.
Combine the width options with existing different coloring options for a truly unique bar chart!

Link Text to a Worksheet Cell!

Often you have information in your worksheet that needs to be displayed on your graph. Now, there is a quick and easy way to add text to your graph directly from your worksheet cell. When the worksheet changes, so does the graph!

Change Box-Whisker Outliers!

Box-whisker chart outliers are points that are well outside the data median, but still contribute to the definition of the whiskers of the plot. The definition of an outlier is any point that:

falls below the lower quartile ?Factor * Inner quartile range or above the upper quartile + Factor * Inner quartile range Grapher 7 now allows you to set the outlier Factor value to any value you want, changing the way the whiskers and outlier points appear on the graph. The default is still 1.5, to mimic previous versions of Grapher.

Add Spline Areas and Curves!

Grapher 7 has added new drawing types! Now, in addition to other drawing objects like text, rectangles, ellipses, and points, you can enhance your graphs with spline polylines and spline polygons! Easily edit the points used for the spline objects to quickly change the shape of the line or polygon!

Connect Moved Labels to Points!

Labels that have been moved can be difficult to read. Now, you have the ability to link the moved label with a connection line. Easily set line styles.

Convert 2D Graphs to 3D and 3D Graphs to 2D!

Grapher now has the ability to convert 2D graphs to 3D and 3D graphs to 2D. Enhancing the look of your graph has never been so easy! Start with either graph type and use the Graph | Change Plot To command to convert the orientation to the other graph type!

Additional New Features!

Save time by creating multiple plots from the worksheet in one step! Now, select all of the columns you want and create all of the plots on a graph with one command!
Quickly create bar charts from categories using the updated, easier to use Graph Wizard!
Add bubbles to your ternary diagrams to show additional information about the graph!
Import data directly into Grapher from any ODBC compatible database, including Access, dBase, Paradox, and more!
Allow Grapher to automatically back up your files! Save time in power outages by using a backup file to recreate your graph. You choose how often to save the back up files!
Create "fill between" graphs where the fill is vertical or horizontal between curves.
Store worksheet paths either to a specific folder or to a relative folder name. For instance, if your data is always in a sub-folder of where your graphs are, you can use the relative naming convention to reference this data location!
Added box and margin settings to the Text Editor. This allows the fill and line properties to extend a distance away from the text. You set the distance!
You choose whether to export page headers and footers with your graph!
Change all font sizes, colors, or properties for all entries in a legend at the same time!
Link plot names and graph titles to the legend! If the plot or graph name changes, the legend automatically updates!

Comments From Beta Testers!

"Overall, I'm very impressed with the improvements! Well done on improving a great bit of software."

"The Script Recorder is AWESOME. This will really help people who are not good at programming get a better handle on how the language works."

"I like most the ability to adjust everything in the graph!"

"I like the wide variety of graph types available, and the intuitive feel of the program."

"Grapher is the best graphing software out there that can be used in any situation."

Grapher 6의 새로운 기능과 특징

After compiling a list of the new features in Grapher 6, we chose a small sampling to display here. Of course, these are only a few of the many features available in Grapher 6!

New Graph Types!

New graph types in Grapher 6 include vector plots, contour maps, surface maps, and 3D XYZ floating bar charts!
The new Vector Plot is a 2D graph that allows you to show your data as arrows in simple to create formats using an XY starting position and either magnitude and direction or XY ending position. Vectors are drawn using the default arrow and line styles. As with every detail in every graph with Grapher, you can change these styles to fit your own preferences for eye-catching graphics every time!
Grapher 6 has added the ability to create new Contour Maps directly from any data file or from existing Surfer?grid files! Grapher gives you the option to color fill contours.
In addition, you can overlay contour maps on surface maps or other graph types to effectively present your 3D data! The ability to control each contour line and fill color separately allows you to highlight only the portion of your graph that you choose!
Surface Maps can also be created in Grapher 6! Create these striking, attention-grabbing 3D surfaces from any data file, 3D function, or Surfer grid file! Add 3D line/scatter plots, bar charts, or bubble plots to display your data!
This example surface map shows topography. However, any variable can be shown as a surface map in Grapher.

Add Confidence Intervals to Fit Curves!

Create your line/scatter plots with both fit curves and confidence intervals! Select the appropriate confidence interval and Grapher calculates and displays the interval automatically on your graph! Fill between the upper and lower confidence lines to highlight your area of confidence in your fit curve. Add multiple confidence intervals to the same graph!

Create Multiple Colored Bars or Bubbles!

A popularly requested item by many existing customers has been for Grapher to be able to easily display bar charts or bubble plots with different colors. Now, this ability has been added to Grapher 6! Create a single bar chart graph with any colors for any bars that you choose! In addition to choosing individual colors, you can also fill with any number of gradients, as in the bubble plot at the right.

Edit Multiple Objects At The Same Time!

Quickly select multiple objects at once using the object manager. Change the properties of all of the objects combined at once time!

Create Dynamic Header and Footer Labels!

Easily determine when graphs were last updated by information contained in the header or footer areas! Grapher gives you the option to add file names, dates, and time stamps to graph headers or footers! Change the graph name or alter the graph in any way and the header or footer information will automatically change!

Add Gradient Fills to Any Object!

Any object that supports fill patterns now also supports gradient fill patterns. You can choose to fill areas using one of the many supplied color files with preset color gradations, or you can create your own unique custom gradient fills! Choose as many colors as you like and Grapher will create a smooth color gradation between them. You can save the gradient fill you created to a color file for later use.

Add Shadows to Legends!

Grapher 6 has added an enhancement to legends! Now, you can add shadow boxes behind the legend, to give the legend a more finished look.
In addition, default features now allow you to have the symbol size set to the plot's symbol size. Now, you have the option to control the default settings!

Split Long Axis Labels!

Long axis labels can be difficult to read. Now, you have the ability to split long axis labels into multiple lines. Easily set a maximum label width for each axis. If a label exceeds this width, Grapher automatically wraps the text to the next line!

Alter Polar Plots in More Ways!

Polar plots can now be limited to whatever angle display you want. Set both the beginning and ending angle axis value and the graph is limited to only this range.
In addition, move your radius axis anywhere on the graph! Since data often require moving axes to display the entire data set in a visually appealing manner, you now have the option to choose the best location for your radius axis!

Additional New Features!

New Null criteria allows excluding data by range and by certain columns in the worksheet!
Change default settings! All objects in Grapher 6 have default settings that can be permanently changed by you! Determine the best property for your graphs, such as line style, fill pattern, font size, and set the default to that! Best of all, if you change your mind, you can reset the object back to the Grapher original default setting!
Fill between any number of curves! By popular demand, the "fill between" command has been altered to allow you to fill between as many curves as you choose.
Create your graph in Grapher in its final presentation quality and appearance. Add graph boundaries and backgrounds to create the graph you want.
Change the page color fill! Do you have difficulty looking at a plain white page when you create your graphs? Grapher now allows you to set the fill color for the screen display. Since this color is not exported or printed, you can use whatever color you desire on the screen!
Fill your function plot up, down, to the right, or to the left. In addition, you can use gradient fills or include your function plot in the "fill between" graphs.
Add 2D curve projections to the walls of any 3D XYZ line/scatter plot!
Customize bar chart labels by putting labels at the top, bottom, or at both the top and bottom of your bars!
Grid lines now include a step setting that allows you to choose how often to display grid lines without changing your tick marks or using a worksheet for the lines!
Add Z drop lines to your 3D XYZ plots!

Grapher 5의 새로운 기능과 특징

버전5로 업그레이드 해야 하는 이유
Easy to use, always available Property Inspector makes editing any object a snap!
The Property Inspector in Grapher 5 streamlines the process of making common graph modifications. For instance, changing the symbol shape takes only a single click with the Property Inspector. In Grapher 4, the same process took five steps!
New in Grapher 5 is a Property Inspector. Editing graphs has never been easier or faster than with the property inspector. No need to double click on your plot to make changes. Now, select the plot, with one click make the change to the graph, and the graph updates immediately!

Preview the Graph Before you Open It!

If you have multiple graph files in the same folder, you already know that it can be difficult to choose which is the correct graph file to open. Now, select any Grapher 5 graph file and click the Preview button. An image of what the file contains will appear making the selection process in choosing the right graph easier than ever!

Customize Toolbars!

Grapher 5 gives you the ability to customize any toolbar. Add any Grapher menu command to your toolbar to have the commands you want readily available as quick-click buttons. Buttons can also be removed from any toolbar, giving you the custom look you desire.

Move 3D Graphs Interactively!

Interactively rotate any 3D graph with the mouse!
Quickly and intuitively rotate any 3D graph with the mouse! Simply click and drag the graph to a new orientation!

Moving Plot Labels Just Got Faster!

Do the labels in your graph overlap? Grapher 5 has added a more convenient and easy method to move the labels -- with the mouse! Click on any plot label and drag it to a new location. No confusing keyboard keys to press and no need to tab through multiple labels to move the overlapping label.

Lock an Object's Position!

Place any object anywhere on the page. Once the object is positioned exactly where you want it to be located, lock the object. The lock prevents the object from accidentally being moved, but still allows you to edit any other properties of the object.

Display Only a Portion of Polar Plots!

Limit the display of the polar angle axis to display exactly what you want!
Grapher 5 has added an enhancement to all polar plots -- the ability to limit the portion of the graph plotted. Now, display only the portion of the graph you desire!

Create 4 New Graph Types!

Four new graph types have been added to Grapher. Create new polar bar charts! If you prefer 3D orientations to your graphs, create the new 3D pie chart. Two new 3D XYZ plots have also been added to the program -- 3D XYZ bar charts and 3D XYZ bubble plots. Now, you can have three independent variables for your bar charts and four variables (including the bubble size) for your bubble plots! In addition, all of the previous graph types are still included in the program: 2D line, scatter, step, function, bubble, bar, floating bar, histogram, polar, polar function, rose diagrams, wind charts, pie, ternary diagrams, box and whisker, and hi-low-close graphs and the 3D ribbon/wall, step, function, bar chart, floating bar chart, histogram, and 3D line/scatter plot.

Polar Bar Chart Graphs

Use the polar bar chart to display bar charts on your polar coordinate graph.
Polar bar charts are similar to regular bar charts, except that the plot is displayed on polar axes.

3D Pie Chart

Displaying your data as a 3D pie chart creates a more visually appealing graph.
All pie charts display categories as percentages of a whole. But, by using the 3D pie chart, your graph becomes more aesthetically pleasing and still displays your data accurately! This impressive graph inserted into your next report will impress your readers and effectively display your data!

3D XYZ Bubble Plot

3D step plots allow the steps to be connected with vertical or horizontal lines.
The same features as a 2D bubble plot are now available in a 3D bubble plot! Only Grapher gives you the ability to compare four variables with this unique graph type!

Candlestick Graph

Customize your graph further by using custom axis labels. This graph shows currency symbols on the Y axis and days of the week on the X axis.
Create your hi-low-close graphs in a candlestick format. This graph allows you to quickly and easily determine whether your stock was up or down in any day by looking at the color!

Improved Exponential Label Format!

Remove the "1x" to show your axis labels exactly as you want them!
Create your graph exactly as you want it to be, by removing the "1x" from the axis labels! Now, your graph is completely ready for the publishers, without any additional editing.

Fully Customizable Symbols!

Eliminate the line going into the symbol by using a different fill color for the symbol!
Grapher 5 adds the ability to change the line and fill color separately for symbols. Make the symbol line color any desired color and the symbol fill color any other color.

Move Pie Chart Labels!

Grapher 5 has added the ability to move pie chart labels! Simply click on the label and drag it to a new location. The line automatically moves to follow the label!

Use Picture Fill Patterns!

Fill with any bitmap pattern to make your graph fill match what the data that your graph displays!
Give your graphs a unique look by filling with any picture! Stretch or tile any bitmap to fill an area.

Change Legend Display Individually!

Do your legends require individual settings? Does the number of symbols or the length of the line for your legend differ from plot to plot or on the same graph? Grapher 5 now allows fully customizable legends! Choose to display zero, one, two or three legend symbols. Change the number of symbols or the length of the legend line for each legend separately!

Improved Backwards Compatibility!

Need to send a Grapher file to a co-worker who uses Grapher 3 or Grapher 4? No problem! Save the file as a Grapher 3 or Grapher 4 GRF! The file can then be opened, edited, and printed in Grapher 3 or 4. If you don't want to send the data in addition to the graph file, send only a Grapher 4 GPJ! The project file retains all of the data needed to recreate the plot!

Advanced Area Calculations!

Calculate the area under your curve to any baseline value! The area tool now shows the area above the baseline, below the baseline, and the total area!

Grapher Supports Numerous Formats!

Export in the formats desired by many publications! Create PDF and EPS files directly from Grapher without needing a printer! The EPS and PDF export formats have been added to Grapher 5 to complement the already existing twenty other export formats!

Additional Features!

  • Use the Pan command to quickly and easily move the field of view around in the plot window!
  • Add multiple Z axes to 3D graphs to make your graphs more informative!
  • Export spline fit curves to a data file!
  • Customize the frequency of plot labels! Choose the range and the step interval for plot labels!
  • Set the minimum and maximum size of bubbles in a bubble plot to any value. This will allow easier comparison of multiple bubble plots!
  • Use text values as criteria to exclude data! Now, any portion of the data can be excluded with either text or numeric information in your criteria column!
  • Display your Grapher files as tabbed documents!
