Hi guys, I'm kind of new to plot composer and I have a pretty simple question.  For a given plot object, how can I change the Plot Area?  To simplify the explanation, I've attached a figure. The Plot Object is tall and narrow, but the actual plot area is still short and wide, which I want to change. Is there an easy way to do this, or would I have to edit the .plc file in notepad?

Thanks in advance!

You have to use the zoom in function (right click > zoom in), then select and drag the area you want to view.

The process is always as follows for FM / dfsu / meshes:
* resize plot to the wanted dimensions or aspect ratio
* zoom in to area to "fill" in the extents.

Plot composer does not feel as intuitive at first, but you'll get the hang of it after awhile.

Cheers

Good morning; wow that was actually quite simple! I didn't think of trying it that way. Thanks!
