View commands

Data Master 2000 provides a wide set of data visualization features. View commands (by default, located in the View submenu of the main menu) should be used to control visual data presentation.

How to plot data in DM2000? Every plot has 8 preconfigured series (to add more series, use pop-up menus of plot viewer and Serie Manager). To be displayed, serie must reference a valid range of worksheet data, otherwise it is invisible and treated as "empty". Initially all series are empty and you need to define data range in order to display curves.
