Chapter 13. This is Your Brain on Graphs > Using the Graph Data Window

Using the Graph Data Window

After you drag with the graph tool (or click and enter the graph dimensions), the Graph Data window pops up on screen, as in Figure 13.4. This is not a dialog box—it's a window that contains its own close box, collapse box, resize box, and scroll bars. It is also more functional than a dialog box. You can click outside the Graph Data window to bring the illustration window to the front. Although the Graph Data window may disappear from view, it remains open behind the illustration window, so that you don't lose any changes you may have made. To bring the Graph Data window back to the front, click its title bar, or choose the Object » Graphs » Data command from the Graph menu. Better yet, right-click (Control-click on the Mac) and choose the Data command. (Alas, although Graph Data is for all intents and purposes an open window, Illustrator does not list it as an option on the Window menu.)

Figure 13.4. You enter data into a spreadsheet made up of rows and columns of cells in the Graph Data window.
