0.1. Adding statistics

The Add statistic panel is used for adding Statistics to a Chart. See the Statistics Reference for information about each individual Statistic.

To add statistics, simply drag any item from the Components toolbar into the Charts area. This will bring up a panel similar to the one shown below:

add-stats

Only leaf nodes (nodes which do not have any children) may be selected. For example, in the example above, the default statistics for "Runner" components are selected. To select a different item, simply click on it. To select multiple items, keep the Ctrl key pressed while you click.

0.2. Chart Menu Options

When clicking on the Chart's menu-button, the following menu is shown:

chart-menu-options

It allows you to delete or rename the chart. It also contains an option to export the raw data contained in the chart, which can be useful if you want to create your own reports with external tools.

0.3. Statistics Menu Options

This menu allows you to remove a specific statistic from the chart or modify its scale.

stats-menu-options

To change the scale of a statistic can be useful when different data points have very different values but it is still desirable to see them in the same chart.

When you choose the Scale option for any statistic, you can modify the scale for any statistic in the same chart, as shown in the panel below:

Scale

Use the sliders to modify the scales. The scale value is shown in a popup as you use the slider. Click on "Done" when you are happy with the result.

0.4. Zoom

The Zoom menu button is used for setting the zoom level used by the chart.
