You can adjust the size of the graph window, the true size of the graph, and the zoomed, or displayed, size.
A graph's true size is its dimensions when it is printed, appended to the ReportPad™, or copied into a different application. For better quality, try increasing the true size instead of resizing a graph by dragging the corner of the graph.
The window size is the size that the graph window appears in Minitab.
The aspect ratio is the ratio formed when comparing the dimensions of a geometric figure. For example, a square's width and height are equal, so its aspect ratio is 1:1.
In Minitab, the data regions of many graphs have an aspect ratio of 1.5:1, meaning that they are one and a half times as wide as they are tall.
You can change an aspect ratio by modifying the length of each side of the graph. Changes to the aspect ratio of a graph should be informed by process knowledge. Lengthening one axis relative to the other accentuates changes that occur in that direction. Shortening an axis relative to the other mutes changes that occur in that direction. These adjustments can serve to better support and illustrate your data, but used incorrectly, they can misrepresent it as well.
Numerous products that are sold by weight were purchased from a grocery store. The following scatterplots represent the relationship between the fill weight reported on packages and the actual weight of the product.
