plotting question

Hi,

I just started using JMP to do nonlinear regression. After doing the nonlinear fit, I'm trying to cut and paste the plot into my report, but I noticed that the plot extrapolates beyond the range that I want (say I want x-axis to show only 0 - 1 and I do not want the regression line to go beyond those values because it's meaningless). Can someone please help me with this? Your help is much appreciated!

Wouldn't the easiest way be just to restrict the X axis to lie between the smallest and largest X values in your data set? You can do that by right-clicking on the X axis of your chart, selecting "Axis Settings" and just changing the limits to whatever you need.

I did that, but I don't want the x-axis to start from 0, if you know what I mean. Because I have points that I want to show at x=0.0 and I want to shift the x-axis slightly to the right so the readers can see that. At the same time, I want the fitted line to only fit between x=0 and x=1. So when I try to slide the axis to the right using the "hand", the fitted line just extend to wherever I slide, when in fact I want to truncate the fitting to the range, i.e., I want to leave some empty space between the start and end of the fitted line. I can do that with "Fit Y by X", but not with the nonliner fit function. Am I making sense?
