Review Graph Setup
The left side of this dialog deals primarily with the line colors. The large
“Color list box” displays the colors that will be used to display the data
curves. The “Change line color for each” combo box below allows you to
select when the line color changes. For example, this combo box is often set
to “Specimen,” which will cause the line color to vary from specimen to
specimen. Therefore, if the color list is set up as in the example displayed on
your computer monitor, the first specimen will have a blue data curve. The
second specimen will have a green data curve. The third specimen will have
a cyan data curve; the fourth a red data curve and so on. Once all the colors
in the color list have been displayed, the list will repeat from the top.
Because there are sixteen colors in this list the seventeenth specimen will
displayed in the first color, blue.
Other options in the “Change line color for each” combo box include
“Channel” and “None.” The “Channel” option will change the line color
every channel. This is useful for when you are plotting multiple channels on
a single axis. Each channel will have a different color. However, the colors
will not change from specimen to specimen. With the “None” option, the
data curve colors will not change at all. Only one color, the first color in the
color list, will be used for all specimens.
If you are running a multicycle method, a new option will be added to the
“Change line color for each” combo box. The “Cycle” option will cause the
line color to vary from cycle to cycle.
The list of colors can be modified to fit your needs. You can add colors to the
list, delete colors from the list, and modify colors already in the list. When
you right-click on a color in the “Color” list box, you get the following pop
up menu, which lists several commands available to you for modifying the
