I changed the fill patterns in some bars (belongs to an overlay categorical group) but it is not updated in the legends. Cant believe such a trivial problem turns out to be a nightmare. Any thought?
I agree with @Thierry_S, I do not see the problem . I attached a JMP script and a screen shot of the plot.
It worked using JMP Pro 13, 14 and 15 on Windows OS. You might want to document your operationg system and JMP version. Also, from the Graph Builder red hot spot menu you can save the script to a script window. This might help debug the problem.
I use JMP 14.0.0 Macintosh. I started from scratch, still not working.
I dragged the treatment categorical column (N,C,L,D) to x axis, dragged the grain and stover biomass to y-axis separately. I also have two sites (L and E) which are in a categorical variable column. I dragged this site column to Overlay. Then it gives me what it looks as in the screenshot (but with default bar fill). I change the fill color and fill pattern the same way i.e. I clicked legend setting in the drop-down menu, and right clicked -> fill color/fill pattern of the bar that I want to change. The fill color is successfully updated in the legend but not the fill pattern.
I simply use the built-in legend position option in the drop-down menu, I tried without changing the legend position at all but the problem persist.
My JMP version is 14.0.0
Did you down load the script I attached, then right click and run? Did is work?
Note when you click on the Legend for a specific Overlay group ( in my example C1, or C2, C3, C4) it colors and patterns for both Y variables.
Instead double click on the Legend, select each Legend items and change accordingly. i do not have a Mac to test if there is a differenc by OS.
However, if teh script I had attached runs, then you know it is doable,
I just ran it, it did not work and the problem persist. I guess it is a version/OS thing. I will check for version update and let you know.
