I would like overlay points from one data table onto a contour plot from a second data table without joining the data tables. I want to maintain the coloring and other properties from the points. I have tried to use the Copy/Paste Frame Contentents feature, however it provides the points but not the colors assigned to the points. Below is an example use JMP sample Data
A contour plot based on Cities.jmp
A map with points from US Demographics.jmp
However using Edit > Copy Frame Contents then Edit > Paste Frame Contents I lose the coloring properties of my points.
You could try a virtual join: Virtual Joins in JMP
Or you could retain some of the customization capabilities using JMP customizations: Problem Solving in JMP and Using Graph Customizations to Create a Smith Chart
I cannot use a virtual join because the data I want to use this on does not have an unique identifier.
I think using JMP's customize feature is probably the best solution. Is there any documentation on what is available to use within customize? I found the section "Drawing Markers and Text" to be helpful, but I would just like more information on what features are available.
Hi, @abkram14 !
You can find all the customization games you can play (with examples) by going to Help > Scripting Index in JMP. From there in the first column look for Graphics(). Select that and the second column will filter down to the graphics options. That's your playground for Graph Customizations.
You can get additional information about what all you can do with additional examples in Help > Books > Scripting Guide. You want Chater 12 in JMP14.
A manual way to do this is to right-click the graph with the single data points, and select Edit > Copy Frame Contents. Then in the other graph right click and select Edit > Paste Frame Contents.
You lose some interactivity this way, but it does the job sometimes. When I do this, I usually first journal each graph, then do the above steps on the graphs in the journal.
