Choose which portions of the matrix to display for Matrix Plot

By default, when you create a matrix of plots, Minitab displays both the lower left portion of the matrix and the upper right portion. The two portions display the same data with the axes reversed. For example, variables that appear on the x-axis in the lower left portion of the matrix appear on the y-axis in the upper right portion. To choose which portions to display when you create the graph, click Matrix Options. To change which portions are displayed on an existing graph, click the graph and choose Editor > Graph Options.

Choose where to display the variable names for Matrix Plot

By default, Minitab displays the axis labels in the middle of the matrix of plots. To display the axis labels along the border of the matrix when you create the plot, click Matrix Options. To change where the axis labels are displayed on an existing graph, click the graph and choose Editor > Graph Options.

Choose where to display tick marks for Matrix Plot

By default, Minitab displays tick marks on alternate sides of the matrix of plots. To display all tick marks on the same side of the matrix, click the graph and choose Editor > Graph Options. (This option is not available if you display only the lower left or upper right portion of the matrix.)
