In addition to the Tip of the Day within JMP software, we are collecting and sharing quick ways to make your JMP use more efficient and fun for a series of tips called "Have you tried..."
Here's our latest tip, below. It's about a row state column:
A row state column stores information about whether rows are excluded, hidden, labeled, colored, marked or selected. Since row state columns store the row states, you can apply them later. This video demonstrates how to create row state columns and save them by copying them from the active row states. Adding row states into a new column allows you to keep multiple marking, coloring, or exclusion schemes and quickly swap between them. Unlike the active row states, row state columns are preserved across table manipulations like joins.
We also have a short video demo for this tip, created by my colleague Amelia Vogler, who has a lovely voice:
