### Tool Bar

Quick short cuts are available in the **Tool Bar** to change common plotting parameters (e.g line vs bar graph, individual points, post-hoc symbols) or reveal other views (e.g. statistical results table).

### Data View

A spreadsheet view of the data used for graphing and analysis: each row is a different subject, each column is a categorical or numeric measure, so each cell is the value of that column's measure for the row's subject. The data can be viewed as a flat table, or with the subjects sorted into their respective Groups.

### Measures Bar and Format Bar

The X- and Y- axes of the current graph can be set by selecting the Y-Value measure and the X-axis category and subcategory with the **Measures Bar** dropdown menus.

Immediately above the Graph Display is a **Format Bar**, which shows the options for reformatting a selected graph or graph element (eg. color scheme, line width, font characteristics, etc.)

### Graph Display

Here the graph is plotted using the selected Y-value and X-categories. By default the graph scales with the size of the window, but you can also fix the size of the graph in the Inspector Panel to remain constant.

A key feature of Xynk is that most of the plotting parameters in the **Graph Display** applied to the current graph are carried over to any other graphs in the file which are plotted with other data in the file, making all your graphs have a consistent look and feel.

### Caption with ANOVA results

Xynk automatically calculates an ANOVA for the selected graph, and lists the overall results and labels the post-hoc comparisons in the **Caption Panel**; this text is designed to be copied and pasted directly for use as a figure caption.

### Measures List

The measures in the file (ie the columns in the data view) are also shown in the **Measures List** on the left sidebar. A measure to be plotted (numeric for y-values, categorical for x-values ) can be selected by clicking on the individual measure in the list. Subcategories of categorical measures can also be seen by clicking on the disclosure triangles; subjects within subcategories can be excluded/included by clicking on the checkbox.

### Inspector Panel

Xynk tries to be intuitive with quick and easy ways to change graph format and analyses. The **Inspector Panel** on the left lets you drill down and tweak all the detailed settings to determine the look of graphs, axes parameters, statistical test details, etc.
