This page will outline some of the things that might help you as you first start including graphs in your documents. The links in this page bring you to more detailed descriptions of certain objects or procedures that are mentioned. You will create all your graphs within the Figure Editor. Figure editor toolbars and features are outlined in the Figure Editor Help Pages. To see some of the graphs it is possible to create look at our grids and graphs page. Here are some helpful hints and tips for when you are first starting to work with graphs. You will most likely want to create a grid to put your graph on. So
