I created a Profile in Surfer, but what is the scale, and can I change it?

When you create a profile, by default the X axis is 6” and the Y axis is 1.5”. This is unrelated to the units on the X and Y axes.


You can change the scale in the profile properties:

  1. Select Profile in the Contents window.
  2. Click the Scale tab in the Properties window.
  3. Change the scale of one direction; or for proportional scaling, check the Proportional XY scaling check box and change the scale.
