From the
Y-scale based on the
following
drop down, select how you want to display the y-scale.

Percent of
range

Select to plot each variable with a unique y-scale. A series that contains
all of the minimum or maximum values for each variable will be a horizontal
line.

Standard
units

Select to plot each variable with a unique y-scale. The minimum and
maximum values for each scale are the overall minimum and maximum z-score
values from all the data that you entered converted to each variable's scale.

For example, the first variable's maximum value has a z-score of 2, while
the other two variable's maximum value has a z-score of 1. The maximum value
for each variable's y-scale is the value that corresponds to a z-score of 2.

Original
data

Select to use a single y-scale that is repeated for each variable. The
minimum and maximum values for the scale are the overall minimum and maximum
values from all the data that you entered.

Sort
variables from greatest to least variation in lines

If you select
Standard
units
or
Original
data,
you can sort the variables based on the variation. This can be useful when you
have many variables and you want to see which one separates the series the
most. If you do not select this option, Minitab sorts the columns in the same
order as you enter them in the
Variables
dialog box.
