The arranger is an abstraction to align elements of a collection. The Group and Tables graphics are arranged via the Alignment properties. The Pie Chart and Bar and Column Chart are arranged via domain specific algorithms. The Function and Scatter graphic consider the collection as their constitutive points.
Below is the arranger for the Function graphic. Note that the only properties are those that refer to other graphics, namely the Color Selector palette and Spreadsheet. That is because the Function is defined by its own constitutives.
Use Palette Colors : When selected then the colors assigned in the palette as define in the Color Selector section are used.
Defines and selects the spreadsheet used to generate the function points. Any spreadsheet can be chosen but that spreadsheet should conform to the intended use. When different spreadsheets are chosen then all representation parameter values are maintained so that this is a good way to flip through alternative data sets while maintaining the representation graphical attributes.
When the representation is made without a spreadsheet then it can be later associated with a spreadsheet in order to delegate the constitutive properties of the representation to an external source.
The column associations are set during representation creation but can be reset here. Choosing different columns are a good way to quickly view different data sets for one line graph.
X : Specifies the column to associate with the x component of the data points.
Y : Specifies the column to associate with the y component of the data points.
