The first half of the menu lets you create different types of charts and/or tables, the second half lets you manage results: Right-click a [[simulation output]] in the result list for a menu.

-When you select an output in the **[[#​Results]]** list, a chart will automatically be created which is titled '​Quickview'​. This chart is replaced as soon as you select other outputs in the list. To retain the chart, you must create a chart using the menu buttons. ​+
  
 Each chart is given a page identified by the title of the chart. To change the properties of the chart, you can either use the buttons beneath in the **Plot** box, or right-click the chart and select **Edit** from the menu.  Each chart is given a page identified by the title of the chart.
