☑ cool new feature ☑ could help many users! ☑ removes a „bug“ ☐ nice to have ☐ nobody needs it @myTop10_2024 What inspired this wish list request? For Line Graphs in Graph Builder, there is a cool feature row order. If it's selected, the line doesn't connect data points from left to right in the graph - but along the order in which they appear in the data table. Instead of this graph: the user gets this graph: Much better ... But unfortunately, there are those nasty jumps "back" to the next curve. Of course, for simple graphs, you can use a column (here "Station") as an overlay to produce 3 separate curves, without the zigzag. But already with slightly more complicated graphs like this one here: Graph Builder. Combine Smoother and Line - how? the user reaches the limits of current Graph Builder (v17, v18). What is the improvement you would like to see? With sorted data in the data table, a step from right to left indicates a new curve. So, with row order enabled, there could be an additional option to draw lines "only left -> right". If this option is enabled, line for steps from higher to lower values will disappear -> the jump back-lines are gone : ) Fallback: Rows with missing y value could be used to add a break in line graphs (even somewhere in the center of the graph - cool, right?) ... if there was an option: *) Why is this idea important? a tiny change of the program - a tremendous improvement for the users: dt =Open( "$SAMPLE_DATA/Functional Data/Weekly Weather Data.jmp" );
dt << New Column( "group",Character,"Nominal",Formula( Substr( :STATION, 8, 1 ) ));
