26.1.7 The 3D Rotation Toolbar

The 3D Rotation Toolbar.png

The 3D Rotation toolbar is available when a 3D graph is active (worksheet- or matrix-derived). Toolbar buttons rotate the graph, change the perspective and reset to the default settings.

You can also rotate, resize and stretch a 3D graph by dragging the mouse.

Button Rotate all.png

Rotate the graph on any direction.

Button Rotate Counterclockwise.png

Rotate counterclockwise on the Z axis by the specified rotation angle. Note: For 3D XYY graphs, rotate counterclockwise on the Y axis; for 3D ternary graphs, rotate counterclockwise on the Zh axis.

Button Rotate Clockwise.png

Rotate clockwise on the Z axis by the specified rotation angle. Note: For 3D XYY graphs, rotate clockwise on the Y axis; for 3D ternary graphs, rotate clockwise on the Zh axis.

Button Tilt Left.png

Tilt the top of the graph counterclockwise the specified rotation angle.

Button Tilt Right.png

Tilt the top of the graph clockwise the specified rotation angle.

Button Tilt Down.png

Rotate downward on the X axis the specified rotation angle.

Button Tilt Up.png

Rotate upward on the X axis the specified rotation angle.

Button Increase Perspective.png

Increase the perspective angle by 3 degrees.

Button Decrease Perspective.png

Decrease the perspective angle by 3 degrees.

Button Fit Frame To Layer.png

Fit the graph to the layer frame.

Button Reset Rotation.png
