How do you change the color of axis lines, labels, and titles?

I have a graph with two vertical (y) axes.  I want to change the color of the axis line, tickmarks, value labels, and title of each y axis (to match the colors I've chosen for the two datasets I've plotted, with one on each axis).  How do I do this?  In Excel it is easy - right click on the axis, value labels, or title and make the change.  I see no way to achieve this in JMP 13, at least not yet.

Ah, I see what you want. No, there is not currently a way to do that.

What platform are you using to produce the graph?  Graph Builder, Overlay Plot, Fit Y by X????

Attaching an image would also help.

Thanks.  I'm using Graph Builder.  Since posting I was able to figure out how to change my value label and axis title colors.  However, I still haven't cracked how to change the color of each individual axis (and its tickmarks) or to change the font color of the data series labels in the legend.  In the captured screen shot, I'd like to make the vertical axis you see, and its tickmarks, and the legend title for this series all the same blue I'm already using (and the same for the other, primary y axis and its associated contents which I'd like to all be the same red).

Preferences > Styles.

 

Frame Color controls the axis line and the tick marks. You'll also see preferences for setting the color of the Major and Minor Grid Lines.

 

HTH,

Melanie -

Thanks - but the problem w/ the Preferences > Styles approach is that it changes the color of the entire frame all to one color.  I want to set my left and right y axes to different colors (to match the colors of the two respective datasets I'm plotting on those respective axes).  These can be controlled independently in Excel but I haven't yet found a way to do this in JMP.  Is there a way?

Bummer - but thanks for confirming that and saving me continued rooting around the menus!
