Different highlighting in JMP 10 when selecting points on graph with line

In JMP 8 and 9, if you created a graph with graph builder with points and connecting lines, you could select individual points on the graph.

In JMP 10, if you create a graph with points and connecting lines, when you select a point it selects the entire line (and all of the rows in the data table).  If you draw a graph using only points (no connecting line), then you can select individual points.

Is there some preferences setting to allow the pre-version 10 behavior?

Try it with these two graphs:

dt = open("$sample_data\Growth.jmp");

// With points and connecting lines

gb1 = Graph Builder(

      Show Control Panel( 0 ),

      Variables( X( :age ), Y( :ratio ) ),

      Elements(

            Points( X, Y, Legend( 1 ) ),

            Line( X, Y, Legend( 4 ), Row order( 0 ), Summary Statistic( "Mean" ) )

      )

);

// Points only

gb2 = Graph Builder(

      Show Control Panel( 0 ),

      Variables( X( :age ), Y( :ratio ) ),

      Elements( Points( X, Y, Legend( 1 ) ) )

);

Had this same problem a few weeks ago, and this thread has some ideas:

Long story short, I had some success using the Lasso tool rather than the arrow for selections.

In JMP 10 a single point can be selected by clicking near the point, not on the point if there is line going through the point. The line will oddly enough still be highlighted in the graph but only one row will be selected in the data table.
