1Creating a Plot from Tabular Data

The quickest way to create a plot is directly from a set of tabular data. Tabular Data When viewing tabular data, a button appears at the top labeled "Create Plot" (see Figure 1):
AfterMath Tabular Data Create Plot Button

Clicking this button creates a new plot with a single trace containing the tabular data (see Figure 2):

2Creating an Empty Plot

There are a couple ways to create an empty plot in AfterMath.  The first is by using the link that appears on the AfterMath Home screen (see Figure 3):

A newly-created plot in AfterMath is then generated (see Figure 5).  Traces can be added to the plot in a variety of ways.
