Edit Menu


Here is a portion of an Excel spreadsheet containing a data table. The selected rows, including the row titles, are copied to the system clipboard by right-clicking and choosing the Copy menu item or by pressing Ctrl-C. The figure at right shows the result after the selection is pasted into the Statistics101 edit window.


The selected rows from the figure at left are pasted into the Statistics101 editor above by right-clicking and selecting the "Paste from Spreadsheet" menu item or by pressing Alt-V. Note that the spaces in the row titles have been replaced with underscores. Also note that the empty cell at C6 has been replaced with "NaN".


Here, columns are selected, including both column titles and data. They are copied to the system clipboard by right-clicking and choosing the Copy menu item or by pressing Ctrl-C. The figure at right shows the result after the selection is pasted into the Statistics101 edit window.


The selected columns from the figure at left are pasted into the Statistics101 editor by right-clicking and selecting the "Paste from Spreadsheet" menu item or by pressing Alt-V. Note that the spaces in the column titles have been replaced with underscores. Also note that the empty cell at C6 has been replaced with "NaN".


This time only the data cells have been copied without including their row or column titles. This gives Statistics101 no information as to which way to interpret the table, so it must ask. See resulting dialog in the figure at right.


At left, only the data is selected, not titles. Therefore the user is asked via the above dialog to choose whether to interpret the table as rows or columns. In this example, columns has been chosen, with the result shown below.

Note at right that the above selection has been interpreted as being columns of data in accordance with the choice of Columns in the dialog above right. Since no titles were included in the selection, Statistics101 created names for each vector. You can edit the names to change them to whatever you prefer.





Control Buttons: The three buttons at the bottom of the panel do the following:

General: This tab allows you to set defaults for various options that affect Statistics101's overall behavior.

Graphs: This tab allows you to set defaults for all of the graphs generated by the graphical commands, XYGRAPH or SCATTERGRAPH or HISTOGRAM. Here is the screenshot of this tab and its description in the following bullets.



Here is the view of the graph tabs if the box is unchecked (tabs wrap):


Editor: This tab allows you to set defaults that control some aspects of the Statistics101 program editor.

Editor Preferences Tab


Select Recovery File Dialog


To recover, select a recovery file from the list, then click Open. The contents of the recovery file will be copied into the editor.

If you don't want to recover any of the files in the list during your current session, then click Cancel. The recovery dialog will disappear and Statistics101 will open normally with the editor empty. The next time you start Statistics101 you will again see the recovery dialog box. If you don't plan to use the recovery file and want to delete it, then click Open to allow Statistics101 to copy the recovery file into the editor, then use the File>New menu item to clear the editor's contents. The old recovery file will be deleted. The recovery files are in a folder named ".Statistics101Settings" within your user home directory and have the extension ".stats101recov". You can delete them manually if you wish, but don't delete any other files from that directory.

Debugger: This tab allows you to set the maximum number of elements of a vector that will be displayed in the Debugger Variables window and how many elements from the head and tail of the oversized vector will be displayed. Displaying only a subset of a long vector can speed up the debugging process. That's because displaying a very long vector can actually take several seconds even on a fast computer and each time you click the "Step" button, all the vectors in the Debugger Variables window must be redrawn. NOTE: These settings take effect when the "Abridge Long Vectors" checkbox (in the Debugger Variables window) is checked and are ignored when that checkbox is unchecked.
