Changing Legend Labels

I'm creating a bar graph in graph builder and the default names on my legend are "Mean(Treated Seed)" and "Mean(Control Seed)". I would like to change them to just say "Treated Seed" and "Control Seed"  When I open up legend settings and rename the legend item, the preview indicates that the change has been accepted and displays exactly how I want it, but when I press the "OK" button, Nothing changes on my graph 

 

Does anyone know why? or have other ways of changing the legend item labels?

Re: Changing Legend Labels

You can determine the version of JMP you are running by going to

     Help==>About JMP

I tried to change the legend setting in both JMP 13 and JMP 14, and both showed the same issue that you discovered.  The Chart Platform has been devalued in JMP 14.  Therefore, I doubt if you will be able to get a fix from the JMP folks.  However, you can duplicate the chart you want in Chart Builder, and as I indicated in my last response, you can change the legend settings in Graph Builder.

I attempted to replicate your issue on JMP 12, 13 and 14.  I was not able find an issue.  What release and operating system are you running on?

Re: Changing Legend Labels

I'm using JMP Pro 13 on a Microsoft Windows 10 Home. I'm not sure how to tell what release I'm using but, the attached photo is what shows up when I open the program's Properties / Details

 

Also If it changes anything I realized that I said Graph Builder in my original post. I meant the Chart tool in the Graph pulldown menu.
