The title of this post is provocative, I know. But if you read this list, I'll bet you'll find something that you didn't know about.
Now, if it turns out that you already knew most of these, I do want to know. Take a moment, let me know and add a comment with a favorite thing that you think most people don't know about JMP.
JMP has lots of shortcut keys and keys to modify mouse clicks. Use them to be make your time in JMP more productive. Here are my favorites:
You can find these keys and more in the Quick Reference Card from Help -> Books -> Quick Reference.
Sometimes you'd like to combine two reports into a single window for ease of analysis or to create something like a dashboard for someone else when you pass a data table to them. Application Builder makes this pretty easy. Start by arranging the report windows on the screen as you'd like them, side-by-side or top-bottom.
From here the method is different for Windows and Macintosh.
Click the checkbox in the lower right of each window. Then click the drop-down menu next to that checkbox on one of the windows and choose Combine Selected Windows.
Alternatively, you can select the windows in the list in the Home Window (click on the first one and shift/ctrl-click on others) and then right click and choose Combine.
Choose Window -> Combine Windows... from the menu bar, and you'll get a list of windows to choose from. Select the ones you want and click OK.
Once you've got your new report window, use the hotspot menu at the top to save a script to the data table – or elsewhere if you like. You can also edit the application using Application Builder to get finer control of the placement and grouping of the report elements.
Many webpages have tables full of data that can be used in JMP. Choose File->Internet Open... and put the address (URL) of the webpage, and JMP will scan the page and find any HTML tables to import.
I've said it before, do I have to say it again? The Word() function is the most useful function for dealing with text strings. If you want some more, Craige@JMP at JMP has a nice list of JSL Character String Functions.
So what do you think? Did you know these? Do you have a favorite "hidden" JMP tip to share? Tell me in comments.
