I am new to JMP and I'm trying to evaluate the usefulness of using JMP in the future. I am trying out the overlay plots in order to plot Multidimensional scaling variables created in SAS with a variable in the dataset as the labels for each row. I want to use this variable as the labels actually on the plot so that when I show labels it doesn't just have a column number as the label.
On the left panel list of panels, when you right mouse click on the column name you will see label/unlabel about half way down the menu list. This is a toggle which will allow you to label the points by the variables in that column. You can label by multiple columns. If you want to remove the label, just select the option a second time on that column.
