1.25 FAQ-139 Can I merge multiple graph windows into one?

Last Update: 6/1/2018

Yes, select Graph: Merge Graph Windows to merge multiple graphs into one graph.

  1. In Merge dropdown list pick the scope of graphs you want to merge, such as all graphs in current folder, all graphs in current project, etc. If you only want to merge several graphs, please choose Specified and then click the ... button in Graph box to choose which graphs to include.
  2. In Specified merge mode, Graph box is editable. You can adjust graph orders.
  3. Set Number of Rows and Columns in merged graph. Note: You can set it to be 1x1 so all merged graphs overlap with each other.
  4. By checking Link Source Graphs, the graphs are linked in result graph so that when you later resize or move one layer, others will resize and move together.
  5. Use Add labels in each graph.
  6. After merging, you can update legends so all legends are combined in one box.

Sometimes the Merge Graphs dialog can be slow to use if you have many graph windows, for one reason because of the graph preview in the dialog. In such cases, it may be faster if you do not open the dialog, and instead merge from the Command Window.

To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Create a new folder in Project Explorer by clicking on the New Folder button on the Standard Toolbar.
  2. Move the graphs you wish to merge into this new folder and make sure they are all open (visible and not hidden). (Use Project Explorer to move graphs from one folder to another by drag-n-drop.)
  3. Select Window: Command Window and type the following: merge_graph
  4. Press Enter and you will have a new window which contains graphs from all the other windows.
  5. Optional: After merging, if you'd like to rearrange the layer orders, you can open the Layer Management dialog from the Graph: Layer Management menu.
