Thanks Jim and Julian. Your combined solution works well ! As an FYI, in JMP 13, After right click on data point, I need to go "Rows" before getting to "Name Selection in Column" There was a second question: How to color the selection so one can demarcate the selected clusters. The answer is same - from "Rows" choose "Rows Colors" (One caveat though, that would not work if "Color" data zone has been triggered) Thanks to all again!

How can one categorize a visual data set into user defined categories in the original data table?
To explain this further. Say I have a scatter plot, and I want to select certain group of points, and call it Category 1, then somewhere else, select another group, call it category 2, and so on. The goal is to make an interval plots of these 'categories' and see how the means etc vary.
Currently, I can use Data View for selection, and fill, say, Tag 1, then repeat with new selection, and call it Tag 2, and so on. Very manual.
In an ideal case, I should be able to "tag" group of points on the plot, choose a destination column in the data table, and perhaps have color option to keep each of the groups visually distinct.
Any pointer on how to make this easy would be much appreciated!
Thanks and Many Kudos 🙂

I've been through "Moving From Minitab® to JMP®: A Transition Guide" and introductory lessons and manual, but still cant follow how the graph files, data files, and projects are being saved, vs what Minitab does. In minitab, I could open a project, put in multiple data files, and associated plots, and save it all in one *.mtw file. I can open mtw, change some data files, plots and save project with a different name. It is all contained. With JMP, I have to save each data file seperately, and keep an eye on where I save it, save each plot seperately, and then before I know it, have one sub folder swell with all these files. (In minitab these would be corraled in one mtw file). On saving plots, I am asked if I need to embed data file, which I do, realizing that if the original data file changes, this will remain the same. Now if I open a plot, and it opens the embedded file, and I change something in this file data file, what happens? Now I may have two files with same name, different contents. Sometimes I may need same data file but with different rows excluded, so now I have to save each data file seperately? I have created JMP projects and added documents (graphs and plots) to get a semblence of minitab project files, but files seen inside JMP prj are pointers? If I move files to different directory what happens? I hope someone can help here. It would also be nice to have a one page slide on file structure differences. This aspect is the first one a minitab user faces and I havn't seen a clear description. Thanks.
