This section describes the old-style plotting windows used as standard in TOPCAT versions 2 and 3. Since version 4 (2013), the visualisation has been rewritten, and the new standard plotting windows are described in Appendix A.4. The windows described in this section are mildly deprecated, and will not be developed further. Most of their capabilities are handled better by the new-style plotting windows. However, these ones are still functional and if you want to use them you can find them in the Graphics menu of the Control Window, below the new-style plot options.
Common features of the old-style plotting windows are described in the first subsection below; the specific windows themselves are described in the later subsections.
