Reorder Classes in the Legend for Class Plots Using Text Classes

Text classes that use the Name method can be reordered in Grapher. Previously, class order was set by listed worksheet order. But you can re-order your text classes to any preferred order.

To reorder legend clases:

  1. In the Object Manager, select your Class Plot (2D, Ternary, or other class plot)
  2. In the Property Manager, click the Plot tab
  3. Click the Edit... button next to the Classes field
  4. In the Edit Classes dialog, ensure the Method field is set to Name
  5. Reorder classes by:
    1. Selecting a class and moving it with respect to the other by clicking the Up or Dn buttons
    2. Dragging and dropping individual classes to move them to a new position in the list.
  6. Click OK or Apply to set the changes



If the Class Method field is set to Equal Number, Equal Intervals, or Custom, the UP/Dn buttons and drag/drop functionality will be disabled.
