Specify the default settings for the display of effects plots

File > Options > Linear Models > Effects Plots

Specify default settings for effects plots. The changes you make to the defaults remain until you change them again, even after you exit your Minitab project.

Effects Plots
Select the effects plots that you want to display.
Display a Pareto chart of the effects.
Display a normal probability plot of the effects.
Half Normal
Display a half normal plot of the effects.

Fit Regression Model creates only the Pareto chart of the effects.

Model Terms
Specify which terms to display on the effects plots.
  • Display only model terms: Display plots only for terms that are specified in the model. All plots display the fitted values.
  • Display all terms: Display plots for all terms that include variables that are specified in the model. Plots for terms that are not in the model display the data values.
For example, assume that a model specifies Categorical 1 and Categorical 2, but not the 2-way interaction. If you select Display only model terms, the interaction is not displayed. However, if you select Display all terms, the plots include the interaction term for Categorical 1*Categorical 2 because both terms are specified in the model as main effects.
Split-Plot Designs
Select which effects plots to display when you analyze a split-plot design.
  • Display effects plots for subplot effects only: Display effects plots for sub-plots.
  • Display effects plots for subplot and whole plot effects: Display effects plots for sub-plots and whole plots.
