Popup menu

Graph right-click popup menu

When right-clicking on a plot function or a single-point parametric plot function a popup menu will appear. In the menu there are three items available:


Selects the function in the Functions sidebar for editing.


Hides the selected graph. Other plots of the graph's function will still be shown.


Removes the function. All its graphs will disappear.

Animate Plot...

Displays the Parameter Animator dialog.


Opens the Calculator dialog.

Depending on the plot type, there will also be up to four tools available:

Plot Area...

Select the minimum and maximum horizontal values for the graph in the new dialog that appears. Calculates the integral and draws the area between the graph and the horizontal axis in the selected range in the color of the graph.

Find Minimum...

Find the minimum value of the graph in a specified range. The selected graph will be highlighted in the dialog that appears. Enter the lower and upper boundaries of the region in which you want to search for a minimum.

Note: You can also tell the plot to visually show the extreme points in the Plot Appearance dialog, accessible in the Functions sidebar by clicking on Advanced....

Find Maximum...

This is the same as Find Minimum... above, but finds the maximum value instead of the minimum value.
