Have you ever fully customized a graph and then decided at the last minute that what you actually wanted was a different plot type entirely? The newest release of Grapher allows you the freedom to change your mind without losing any of that customization. In one click, transform a 2D scatter plot into a class scatter plot, to group your data into bins or classes with minimal effort.
Convert a fully-customized scatter plot to a class scatter plot to group points into bins or classes without losing the customization you've already done.

Adjust the size of individual legend entries to properly distinguish between your plots.
3. Improved functionality around adding a plot to a graph from the ribbon bar

Add a new plot easily to an existing plot with the Add to Graph | Plot command on the Home or Graph Tools tab in the ribbon bar.
4. Auto-recovery (restore backup files after crash)
Grapher can now save an auto-recovery file in the event of system failure, power failure, or other disruption. This autosaved file will be safely retained, and will re-open without prompting when you next open Grapher. Auto-recovery files will be created by default if the Auto-Backup option is turned on in File | Options.
