Thanks for providing an example. With this sample data, there are a couple things going on. One is that there are a lot of potential box plots. There are 2 levels for P1 X 24 wafers X 13 lot IDs, so Graph Builder is allocating space for 624 box plots, which makes them skinny. However, a little less than half of those combinations contain data, so it only draws 290 box plots. That's still a lot, and I can see why they look too skinny since half the slots are empty. Looks like your data may have even more empty slots.

The only remedy I can think of is to create some synthetic variable that represents only non-empty combinations, such as the Wafer ID in lot ID column in the sample data does, but that may give up the consistent coloring.

Re: How to change width (fatness) of box plots in graph builder?

Thanks for explaining.

and its kinda wiered the moment you add overlay option, box becomes skinny. :(. Thats only option for coloring boxes by "Split" to have some sort of legend option.

Re: How to change width (fatness) of box plots in graph builder?

I have this same problem. Without an overlay variable the box plots are nice and wide. It doesn't matter what variable I choose for the overlay. If I have more than 4 box plots in my chart, GB shrinks the box plot width by half when I drag in an overlay variable.

But I can't color them without the overlay variable. The color is less important to me that seeing the statistics. So I'll go monochrome! Hopefully an easy fix for a subsequent update.

Hi,

I want to change the width of my bar chart in JMP so that a two bar chart graph has the similar width as the 4 bar chart graph.

Thanks
