Patterns in Bar Graphs?

Is it possible to create patterns among bars in a bar chart? Bar color can be modified, but I would like to use patterns for printing in black and white.

Sorry -- no patterns, just shades of gray.

Re: Patterns in Bar Graphs?

Thank you for the reply. Shades of gray don't provide sufficient contrast among cases. Journals typically want black and white graphs. What would it take to incorporate patterns such as those available in Excel (i.e. stripes vert. and horz., checkered, diagonal, etc)?

Thanks again,

Mike

Don't tell Tufte!

Being new to JMP I didn't understand, "Don't tell Tufte". Now after a Google search I have better understanding. Still not sure, though, whether Tufte would agree or disagree with need for patterns.
