Topic: Axis

Hello,

In a future version could you consider to add a new functionalityt axis formatting:

Sometimes it is necessary to show the negative axis in place of positive. I prepared an example to be more clear.


Note: I made the tarnslation but it has to be revised... I will fix it then send to you.

Re: Axis

I admit I don't understand the need for negative axes, but I will take a look at it and implement it if it is not too difficult.

Re: Axis

I really need it if it is possible, because I use Graph to see what I get from my experiments and it is better to show the negative axis in place of positive. This makes life easier to compare the two regions.

Briefly, Graph is basically a fitting and demonstration tool for me. I use it for this purpose. If I knew how to program I would have added may functionalities to Graph. Unfortunately I do not.

Some of the ideas are to letting the spreadsheets make calculations to have log or sqrt of the value in another Y1 axis so you can see Y2 axis as log or etc

To add a fitting functionality letting us to choose a range of value from the spreadsheet, so we can fit only a ceartain part of our graph. This would have been excellen to have in graph.

For Microsoft it is possible to add grf files as object but for Openoffice.org it is not possible and it is very sad because I am trying to migrate to Openoffice.org to support it.

To be able to add the x and y axis names and comments and units at the first 3-4 lines of the spreadsheet is another idea.

Adding a scientific calculator might be another nice option

Even though we do not have these, Graph is still excellent. Thank you one more time for developping it.

I will see what I can do, but don't expect anything soon.

I have been considering the possibility to add more axes, but it is rather low on my priority list.

Can't you just copy only the values you want to fit into Graph?

Actually it is possibly, but you have to use $matches[1] instead of $matches[1] in OpenOffice.org.
It does seem to have some limitations though.

I think this will be added to one of the next versions.

I am processing lat least 16 data each day with the required calculations each graph takes a lot of my time in that way. And I have 360 to 420 raws each time it is hard to find the range manually.

Actually it is possibly, but you have to use Paste special instead of Paste in OpenOffice.org.

I tried but I was not able to do it. Could you explain in detail? I copied the grf file and went to OOO but there was no paste function for this copy process...

Besides, we are not able to select all the functions or graphs in one grf file at a time, because I trid this way too.

Re: Axis

First, choose $matches[1] in Graph, then chose $matches[1] in OpenOffice.
