Modify a Graph’s Plot Style

Changing a plot style means that you can alter how your graph’s data are displayed – for example: whether you want to display your data as a bar or line. This feature can also be useful when you have created a comparative graph, showing data for more than one channel, and wish to make each of them either visually distinct.

This feature is not available for Scatter Plot graphs
