Rookie Grapher User. I'm creating 2D piecewise linear curves using Grapher. So far I've only discovered how to enter or edit datapoints via the "Edit Points..." button at the top of the graph. Editing the points using the keyboard is tedious, is it possible to move points in the point set using the mouse, via drag-and-drop? (I'm getting the idea the answer is "no").

I don't think you can do that but you can put your points in a file and then input the file. I find it much easier to input data using an editor that the boxes on Grapher. Give you file a name that ends in .txt and then you can go to import and after clicking on that the frame that appears has an import button. When clicking on import it opens a Finder window for you to select the file you want.

  • Thanks, I don’t have a particular problem with the edit box that pops up. And I suspect my use is not particularly mainstream. I’m using Grapher to create/visualize a response curve that gets imported into a application I’m developing in C#. I’m experimenting with a variety of curves, and was hoping to speed up the process by entering/editing the points graphically. Aug 26, 2020 at 23:55
