Can I create multiple plots in Grapher with different axes?

Yes, you can create multiple plots with each plot using separate axes. A plot can use any existing X or Y axis to display. Or, a new axis can be created for each plot.
 

To create a new graph with a single line/scatter plot, click the Graphs | Create | Basic | Line/Scatter Plot command. Select the data file and click Open.

 

Once the graph is created, the following steps can be used to add a new axis:

  1. Click anywhere on the graph to select it.
  2. Click the Graphs | Add to Graph | Axis command.
  3. Select the axis type to add and click OK.
  4. Set the axis position and click OK. The new axis is added to the graph.

 

To add a new plot using a different axis than the default:

  1. Click anywhere on the graph to select it.
  2. Click the Graphs | Add to Graph | Plot command.
  3. Select the plot type to add and click OK.
  4. In the Choose Axes dialog, click on the existing axis name under X Axis or Y Axis. Select the desired axis. Click OK.
  5. Select the worksheet for the new plot and click Open. The new plot is added to the graph, using the selected axes.

 

To add a new plot and create a new axis at the same time:

  1. Click anywhere on the graph to select it.
  2. Click the Graphs | Add to Graph | Plot command.
  3. Select the plot type to add and click OK.
  4. In the Choose Axes dialog,
    1. Click on the existing axis name under X Axis or Y Axis. In the list, select Create new axis.
    2. Set the Length, X, and Y positions.
    3. Click OK.
  5. Select the worksheet for the new plot and click Open. The new plot and new axis are added to the graph.

 

To change a plot to use a different axis:

  1. Follow the steps above to create a new axis and/or a new plot.
  2. Click on the plot to select it.
  3. In the Property Manager, click on the Plot tab.
  4. Next to X axis or Y axis, click on the existing axis name. Select the desired axis from the list. The plot updates to use the newly selected axis.
