Previous versions of Grapher require that data be in columns to create most plots. If your data is in rows, you can use Grapher's worksheet to quickly transpose rows to columns.

To transpose data in Grapher:

  1. Click the File | Open command.
  2. Select the worksheet and click Open.
  3. Click the left mouse button and select the first cell.
  4. Hold down the left mouse button and highlight all of the cells that should be transposed.
