I have many line plots in my Grapher graph and I would like to name the plots with names that are more descriptive. How do I do this?

Each object, including graph objects, can be given a unique name in Grapher. By default, multiple line plots are named Line/Scatter Plot 1, Line/Scatter Plot 2, etc. The easiest way to give objects unique names is by using the Object Manager

By default, the Object Manager is docked on the left side of the plot window.

Grapher 12

The Object Manager is displayed on the left side of the plot window, highlighted in this image.


If the Object Manager is not visible, check the box next to the View | Display | Object Manager command.


Right-click on the Line/Scatter Plot in the Object Manager and select Rename Object. Type a new ID into the box and click OK. Alternatively, slow double-click on the Line/Scatter Plot object name in the Object Manager to edit the ID.


If you would like a default name from a worksheet name or column, please let us know.
