Specify Contours for All Contour Plots (without a dialogue for each plot)

on JMP for Mac, v 14.3

 

I am plotting a two dependent variables using Graph-->Contour Plot with a "by" variable so I end up with 12 different plots.  I want all the plots to have the same contours for correct comparison purposes.  

 

Typically holding down the command key when I make a selection under the red carat applies changes to all the plots in the plot window.

 

With a Contour Plot and "Specify Contours", it behaves differently, requiring that I type in the 3 of 4 inputs for EACH plot.

I'm hoping there's some way to force them to all be the same with only 1 dialogue entry.

 

 

I looked for discussions addressing this and found none.  Which makes me think there is an easy/obvious way to do this I don't know or it's not a common complaint/need of the community.

 

Any ideas/suggestions would be helpful.

When you interactively startup the Contour Plot Platform, you can specify the contour specifications, and they are honored for all Contour Plots drawn

Re: Specify Contours for All Contour Plots (without a dialogue for each plot)

I cannot find a way to broadcast the menu command through the UI, but it is easy with a script. Here is an example.

 

Names Default to Here( 1 );

dt = Open( "$SAMPLE_DATA/Big Class.jmp" );

cp = Contour Plot(
	X( :height, :weight ),
	Y( :age ),
	Show Data Points( 0 ),
	Fill Areas( 0 ),
	Label Contours( 0 ),
	Transform( "Range Normalized" ),
	By( :sex )
);

cp << Specify Contours( Min( 12 ), Max( 16 ), N( 5 ) );
Learn it once, use it forever!
