I am trying to change the number of significant figures on my Distribution Statistics Summary. I am getting a mean with ~10 sig figs but I only need to be reporting up to 3 sig figs. Is there a way I can change the number of decimal places the statistics does to? I am able to create a table and change the values but it does not reflect on my distribution graph.
Double-click on the axis of your graph. That will bring up a dialog where you can control the format of the axis which allows you to specify the number of digits after the decimal that you would like displayed.
I don't know if there's a way to do it for a whole session or not; if you need to do it for just one distribution, you can just double click right over the value (say, mean = 0.124525) then Format --> Fixed Dec). That will change the number of dec. places shown. I've been looking around in the preferneces, but to my knowledge I couldn't find a way of making that fixed.
Now, if you need to run through multiple distributions in a given sheet, what you can do is run 1 distribution, change the number of decimal places as mentioned above, then click on the red dropdown --> Script --> Column Switcher. Select all the columns you want to see distributions of and that should show you statistics only with the desired # dec. places. If you need to do it for multiple sheets, one single column, changing it once and then copying the script might be faster.
