<P>Thanks, Phil. </P><P>This morning I also used Overlay to create the desired effect in terms of the "picture". The advantage is that there is just "one" x-axis to work with which makes things a bit easier.</P><P>Graph builder is a great tool!</P>Tue, 04 Dec 2018 12:42:31 GMThttps://community.jmp.com/t5/Discussions/No-line-break-between-some-of-the-points-in-a-time-series-plot/m-p/84921#M38021scottahindle2018-12-04T12:42:31ZRe: No line break between some of the points in a time series plot

No problem. Yes, my general advice with Graph Builder is to learn by playing. Try putting variables in different roles and see what happens. You can't break anything.<BR /><BR />"Graph builder is a great tool!" - Isn't it just!Tue, 04 Dec 2018 12:46:54 GMThttps://community.jmp.com/t5/Discussions/No-line-break-between-some-of-the-points-in-a-time-series-plot/m-p/84923#M38023phil_kay2018-12-04T12:46:54Z
