If you have dataset files loaded and tracks created, your main iCores control window should resemble that pictured below. To plot data, right-click on the desired data file and choose "Graph...". This opens the Graph dialog.

Select one or more sections and the available data fields will be shown in the "Properties fields" list. Checking a field's checkbox in the "Show" column will plot that data in the main visualization area. To change the color of plotted data, click the field's color cell and select from the resulting palette. Corelyzer attempts to use the same color across all sections for fields of the same name. The "Data Range" column indicates the min/max range of data across all selected sections.

Keyboard Commands:

In some cases, you may want to expand the vertical size of graph plots, e.g. those with a large depth range. To increase or decrease the graph (vertical) scale, you can first click on the visualization canvas area, and then press '[' or ']' to decrease or increase the graph's size on-screen.
