Thanks again, Jim! I discovered that it was as simple as the sizing (more ratio than size) in the plot script that needed adjusting and now it works great.
I will most assuredly take your advice and read the Scripting Guide once the complerte tool I'm developing is prototype ready, which I believe it now is thanks to you. I tried to show the display tree for the surface plots, but I couldn't figure out how to do that. It appears to be a different method from displaying for other charts.
To show the Display Tree just right click on any outline box's gray trangle and select "Edit==>Show Tree Structure"
Well, look at that! I clicked everywhere BUT there.
Now I discovered that I'm not getting the legend. The tree structure isn't helping me with that either. Sssigh! I can't seem to win with this option. A single Surface Plot is a piece of cake in comparison.
Thanks again, Jim!
I am having the same issue with getting graphs into presentation. this is very helpful. now what if you have more plots and need to put them on another slide?
Repeat the same process as before, with the 2 new objects you want to put together, but then when you go to Save the Presentation, specify to Append to the existing pptx
myhlb2 << save presentation( "C:\mypicture.pptx", Replace( Append) );
See documentation and an example in the Scripting Index
Help==>Scripting Index.........search on "Save Presentation"
Hi thanks for the help last time.
I am still working on this..
Just curious if we can make a more flexible script where i have specific dimensions for my HLBox and VLBox but use a for loop to append each object of a report with n items. also n is not fixed thats why we need a loop.
biv = Bivariate(); //with n objects
nbiv = N items(biv);
myhlb = V List box();
myvlb = V List box();
for(i=1, i<=nbiv, i++,
myhlb << append( report( biv[i] ) ); //but only 3 objects appended at a time
myvlb << append( myhlb << get picture ); //and this one, only 2 objects appended at a time
goal is to have 3x2 objects per slide
is this possible?
