in Grapher™ 4?
Grapher 4 has an embedded
Excel window for quicker editing of data files!
Open the Excel file directly in Grapher and make any
necessary changes. Use all of Excel's abilities to
create and edit your data file. Spreadsheets
edited in the Excel window automatically update the
plots in any open graphs!
Grapher 4 now
recognizes dates! Use date columns in the
worksheet as dates in the graph! When using date
columns, tick labels for the corresponding axis will
automatically be in date/time format!
Data occasionally is split
into two different groups that are located at separate
ends of an axis. This causes difficulty in
interpretation. Grapher 4 has the ability to break
the axis and remove the middle section so that data are
better presented and easier to analyze. Scales,
tick spacing, and divisions between ticks can be changed
on either side of the axis
This axis break
occurs between 80 and 240.
Between Graph Types!
Think that your
line plot will look better as a bar chart? Now it
is easy to switch between graph types! With a
single command, your plot will change into the new
desired plot type!
Lines to Ternary Diagrams!
Grapher 4 has added the
ability to connect the points in a ternary diagram --

Symbol For Bubble Plots!
Grapher 4 has added the
ability to change the symbol used in bubble plots!
This allows you to choose the symbol size range, color,
and shape that you choose for your bubble

New Graph Types!
Nine new graph types have
been added to Grapher. Create polar function plots
and wind charts. If you prefer 3D orientations to
your graphs, create ribbon/wall, step, bar, floating
bar, histograms, and function plots that include
depth. A 3D XYZ Plot has also been added to the
program so that line or scatter plots can have three
independent variables. In addition, all of the
older 2D graph types are still included: line, scatter,
step, function, bubble, bar, floating bar, polar, rose
diagrams, pie, histograms, ternary diagrams, box and
whisker, and hi-low-close
Function Plot Graphs
Function plots are created by
calculating a mathematical equation across a range of
values. These can be useful when determining
Use the polar function plot to
display mathematical formulas on your polar coordinate
Wind charts show the
distribution of wind direction and are binned according
to wind speed.
Bubble plots show three dimensions
Grapher 4 introduces a
variety of 3D graphs. The ribbon/wall graph is a
line plot projected into 3D space.

Floating Bar Charts
Floating bar charts can be
used to show the differences between two variables with
respect to a third similar variable. In 3D, the
differences stand out!
Change the 3D orientation to make the
graph more visually appealing!
3D Histograms can be used to

Files Make Storing Graphs
Use Project Files to open
graphs on different computers, store archive copies of
graphs, or to send your work to colleagues!
Project files retain all of the properties of the graph
and save the data file internally. Once a project
file is created, the data set on the computer can be
deleted without affecting the graph. No need to
send each of the data files that the graph was
originally created with any longer! Project files
can be edited and resaved many times -- any part of the
graph can be changed, including the data used to create
Grapher 3 GRF Files!
Need to send a Grapher file
to a co-worker who uses Grapher 3? No
problem! Save the file as a Grapher 3 GRF!
The file can then be opened, edited, and printed in
