Controls

Plot Title   displays the current plot title. The default plot title is the $y$-axis label of the first file read into the panel, but you can edit the text entry to change the plot title.

Files   contains a selectable list of loaded file names. If you enter a valid file name into the text entry field below the list and press the Add... button FLUENT will load the file and update the panel. If, however, the file is not found or has already been read, the Select File dialog box will be opened.

Legend Title   sets the title of the legend. By default, the legend has no title.

Legend Entries   contains a selectable list of legend labels associated with the loaded files. The default legend label is the title (first string) in the file. You can modify the legend label by selecting the old name in the Legend Entries list. It is then displayed in the text entry field below the list and may be edited.

Add...   loads the file named in the Files text entry field or opens the Select File dialog box if no name, a wrong name, or a duplicate name appears in that text field.

Delete   removes the file selected in the Files list.

Change Legend Entry   changes the legend label of the selected file to the text entered in the text entry field below the Legend Entries list.

Plot   displays an XY plot of the data associated with every loaded file. You can use the Delete button to remove files that you do not wish to plot.

Axes...   opens the Axes panel, which allows you to customize the plot axes.

Curves...   opens the Curves panel, which allows you to customize the curves used in the XY plot.
