Scale Scrolling for Data Navigation

MagicPlot provides useful data navigation. Here are several tools and methods:

  • Mouse wheel rotation inside the current Axes box scrolls x/y or changes x/y scale. Ctrl and Shift keys toggle the mode
  • Scale box zoom instrument
  • Hand instrument (only if the image zoom is 1x, otherwise image will be scrolled)
  • The scrollbars (only if the image zoom is 1x, otherwise image will be scrolled)
  • Scale buttons on the toolbar

Do not Confuse Scale Scrolling and Image Zoom

  • Scale scrolling affects the x/y scale minimum and maximum values. Use scale scrolling for data navigation.
  • Image zoom enlarges the entire image (Pro edition only). Use image zoom for accurate drawing of small objects.

Current Axes

If your Figure contains more than one Axes box, MagicPlot indicates which Axes are currently selected with circle sectors in the corners of Axes box. The current Axes selection affects the action of scale buttons and Add to Selected Axes item in Table context menu. It also helps you to distinguish the Axes when you change style in the Figure Properties dialog window.
