Spreadsheet: Create List of Points options

rfv shared this idea 8 years ago
Under Consideration

When I select 2 columns of numbers in the spreadsheet and Create: List of Points, I get a list object as well as new named points. Changing the color and style of the list has no effect on the display of the points.


On the other hand, If I choose Two Variable Regression Analysis for the same selection then Copy to Graphics View I get a single list with no new named point objects, and their color and style are changed uniformly with the list properties.


This 2nd method is often far more useful for plotting and editing multiple series of points on the same graphics view. I would like to see this an available right-click option for List of Points and Polyline, without the need to open the Regression Analysis window.

I think this is a bug, not a feature. The name of the list of points changes color, but not the points themselves.

You can select points in Algebra View or in Properties... and change color and style...

instead right-clic on your list, you right-clic on points !!!

(all points clicking on "points" or some points with cmd (on Mac))


With 2nd method, points don't have name

and you can't give different color or style to points...


I think this is not a bug, but a choice... so you can do all you want...

Hi !

I have a question about creating list of points:

Is there any easy way of copying the coordinates of the points in algebra view to spreadsheet in order to create list of points? (instead of writing every point manually)

Or is there an easy way of creating list of points without using spreadsheet?

Thank you !

Hi,


Select the points you want either by dragging a rectangle around them in the graphics view or using Ctrl-Click and Shift-Click in the Algebra View. Drag the selection from the Algebra View to the Input Line. Enter.


To get this list into the Spreadsheet use something like FillColumn[1,list1].

You might select each column and generate two separated lists, say L1 and L2. Then: (L1, L2) will not make different objects for each point of the list.
