Sorting

The Sorting Panel

The Sorting panel contains options for sorting the data displayed in the chart.

  • Bar Chart - Sort the order of colors within each bar group. If displaying the Bar Title or Bar Label, you can choose to sort by those values as well.
  • Pie Chart - Sort the order of colors within each pie. If displaying the Pie Title or Pie Label (Center Data), you can choose to sort by those values as well.
  • Box Plot, Histogram, and Time Plot - Sort color categories, as well as X-axis categories.

The following properties are on the Sorting panel:

Sort Categories

Check this box if you want to use a custom sort, rather than the order found in the table.

Sort by Bar/Pie Title

Check this box if you want to sort the bar groups / pies by the bar/pie title. If there is no bar/pie title this property is unavailable.

Sort by Bar/Pie Label

Check this box if you want to sort the bar groups / pies by the bar/pie label. If there is no bar/pie label this property is unavailable.
