Apply existing groups when you add new elements

To add a new data display element to a graph, click the graph and choose Editor > Add > Data Display. To apply the existing legend groups when you add a new element, select Apply attribute assignment variables of current displays to added displays.

For example, the interquartile range (IQR) boxes in the following boxplot are different colors for the different levels of the Activity variable.

If you add ranges boxes, but do not select Apply attribute assignment variables of current displays to added displays, all of the ranges boxes are the default blue color. If you select this option, then the range boxes are the same color as the IQR boxes.
