## How to Add Multiple Elements to a Graph Builder Box Plot

When using graph builder and selecting a box plot, how do I make all the date points show and not just the outliers?

Hi geparker,

You can do this a few different ways. After generating the box plot in graph builder you can right click the graph, select add, then select points. Alternatively, you can add the points on top of the box plot by dragging the icon with points (in the pallete above the graph) on top of the graph. Dragging a visual (rather than clicking it) adds the visualization to the current plot (rather than replacing it).

I hope this helps,

Julian,

What if you have multiple sub-categories per main category like below? How do you get the points map to align with the box plot rather than just a jitter over the entire category?

I've been trying to figure this one out and starting to think JMP can't do this yet...

Simply drag the column with the sub-categories to the top of the X axis to add it and nest it under the main category.

Learn it once, use it forever!

geparker​​,

Guess what's my JMP 12's Tip of the day (54 of 64)?

To overlay an element on an existing element in Graph Builder, press Shift then click the element icon that you want to overlay (image below).
