Plot is a scientific 2D plotting program. The project started in 1993 with SciPlot on NeXTStep and continues with "Plot" for OS X till 2007.

Plot is designed for everyday plotting: it is easy to use, it creates high quality plots, and it allows easy and powerful manipulations and calculations of data.

Basically Plot allows to work with multiple documents where every document consists of one or more XY data sets (called buffer in Plot). There is also the ability to add subviews (plots inside plots) to your document. A subview is completely independent with its own data buffers, graphic attributes etc.

A real great prgram! It has many possibilities to visualize Datasets and to plot functions in 2D. And it is easy to use and works without any problems here in Mavericks (10.9.2).
Thank you Michael for adapting the arrowplot!

It's really great to see this back and being developed! As a bonus the version number has skyrocketed past 0.9 recurring, skipped 1.x altogether and gone straight for 2.x - so you know it's gonna be good ;-). Welcome back, you have been missed.

since this is no longer being developed, it should be opensourced so the community can over.
An alternative to Plot and SciDAVis is Veusz which is under heavy development

Oh, no. Upgraded to Snow Leopard and Plot is not happy about it. Menu dialogs don't seem to respond. Existing files open okay via the Finder, though.

Hope there is a fix or workaround. Brilliant program. Top-notch.

Nevermind. It was an incompatible login item (not sure which one yet) that caused the problem. Plot seems to be working fine with Snow Leopard. Hurrah.

Thank you developer! I love the degree of customisation available and how easy it is to use.

Beginners tips:
you can copy and paste data from a spreadsheet into the data view window

It is a pleasure to work with this piece of software. So powerfull and yet so simple. Not to mention its free.
I hope it's not the final version of it, because there is still some room for development.
My complements to you, Michael Wesemann.

Still the most brilliant plotter around, with unequaled features and a very reasonable user interface given all it does.
(would I dare say: easier than Apple's one? just try importing a dataset in Grapher...)
Add to this a good documentation and very regular evolutions...
All the best to the developper!

Cool. Thanks for the update.

But I can't enter data in a new data sheet. It always displays a date in the Y column. Poking around, I found that if I double click the column title it would change to a number that I could edit correctly. Weird...

It would be nice if it saved the windows state between launches (sizes and positions).

Happy Holidays ;)

One word: amazing! I wish I had suck a nice, powerful and free program sometime ago when I was in College. ;)
Suggestions/questions:
- Can't I create a new data sheet and enter data manualy? There should be a New Data Sheet command, and when the Data Sheet is select, you could import/export data to/from it.
- I miss the option to select a data point in the graph using the mouse pointer (show the exact position in the inspector and/or highlight the data row in the data sheet).
- A step increment in the Calculations would be also useful, besides the total number of steps (both are related).
- The way the program uses to manualy place the legend is a little odd. Why not make it a regular text box and move it with the regular pointer, just like text?
If it could also export in PNG or JPEG it would be nice, although you can always use Preview to convert the PDF to other format.
I didn't understand all the option/command, but I am sure it will be easier where there's a help and or documentation available.
Congrats for the excellent piece of software and thanks for making it free! :)
