Functionality to generate Plots with specific Plot Size

☐ cool new feature
☑ could help many users!

☑ removes something which feels like a „bug“

☐ nice to have

☐ nobody needs it



What inspired this wish list request? 


To generate presentations with consistent design and smooth transitions, users might want to generate Plots with consistent size and design.

In Jmp it is very difficult generate plots with consistent plot region and label sizes: Graph builder Frame size JSL 

In Jmp 18, a new feature was added to store plot settings and to apply the settings to other plots. But this does not include a fixed plot region.


Jmp support thinks that it might be possible to gernate plots with consistent plot region size - but cannot provide a recipe nor code to accomplish the task: TS-00076249


The background: In general, every Graph that is exported from Jmp (via Save or copy to clipboard) has a different size of the plot region, even if the Size() setting is the same. Factors which influence the size of the plot region - even for identical Frame sizes:

- screen resolution

- font sizes

- axis orientation

- axis label settings

- ...?


What is the improvement you would like to see? 

Please proved a method to generate plots with consistent size of the plot region and axis size settings.


Why is this idea important? 

Graphs which are exported from Jmp look nice. But if every graph has slightly different size and label size, this looks chaotic when switching from one slide of a presentation to another.

With the new option, this issue can be solved.
