What's New
Version 4.5.0:
  • Added the following plot types:
    • Fill to the Linear submenu
    • Floating Bar and Floating Column to the Bar submenu
  • Increased the number of variables that can be plotted on a single plot. Most plots allow you to plot up to 99 variables.
  • Redesigned the Variable Selection dialog.
  • Added 24 new plot symbols.
  • Added support for the latest Excel file formats (.xlsx).
  • Modified how plots are exported to avoid using QuickTime and achieve higher resolution images.
  • Added a CMYK option when exporting TIFF images.
  • Added support for drop lines in many of the plot types.
  • Added support for natural log and log (base 2) axes.
  • Plot symbols can now have an outline color that is different from the fill color. This also allows the frames in Box and Percentile plots to be different from the fill color, and for the frames in Bar and Column plots to be different as well (unless Black Column Frame is selected in Plot Options).
  • The following items can now have their colors set independently:
    • axes
    • major and minor grid lines
    • major and minor ticks
  • Added an option to display the median line on a Dot plot.
  • The width of the boxes in Box and Percentile plots can be controlled by the Column Offset field in the Bar portion of Plot Options.
  • Box plots can now have a fill pattern when markers are displayed on the plots.
  • Percentile plots can now have fill patterns.
  • Added a Slice Data command to the Functions menu that can be used to reorganize Y data associated with up to three grouping variables for further analysis.
  • Added an Export All Curve Fits command to the Curve Fits menu that compiles all of the curve fit results in a new data window.
  • Expanded the number of statistics that are calculated when performing a Linear curve fit. The new statistics include: adjusted R^2, standard error, F value, and P value for the overall fit, as well as standard error, t value, P value, and upper and lower 95% confidence limits for the slope and intercept. These statistics can be viewed by choosing View Results or Copy Parameters to Clipboard from the View pop-up menu in the Curve Fit Selections dialog or by choosing Curve Fit > Export All Curve Fits.
  • Added a Copy Confidence Values to Data Window command to the Curve Fit Selections dialog for Linear curve fits. Choosing this command appends the specified confidence limit values of the Linear curve fit to the data window for further plotting.
  • Added a Copy Predicted Values to Data Window command to the Curve Fit Selections dialog for exporting the values from a curve fit at the original X values.
  • The Axis, Grid, and Tick Thickness fields have been replaced by pop-up menus.
  • Modified the Edit Text dialog so that it can be resized. This text editor is used in several locations within KaleidaGraph, including the Posted Note and the Library.
  • The Line Thickness setting in Plot Options now controls the thickness of the legend
  • symbol for variables that are represented by a fill pattern.
  • Expanded the commands available in the #SCRIPT formula script command. It is now possible to script all of the options available in Axis Options and Variable Settings. It is also possible to apply curve fits via a script.
  • Added some commands to the #PICT/OPT formula script command. It is now possible to specify the resolution and control the size of the exported image via a script.
Version 4.5.0:
  • Added the following plot types:

I am using KD for 20 years ! Back in those days it was a fair program and comparable with other available programs. This program enables to generate professional graphs that look by far better than anything XL can come up with. However, the GUI hasn't change during those 20 years, and the ability to manipulate the data is not too good. Due to the ridiculous upgrade price ($60) from 4.1 to 4.5 I am seriously considering to abandon this dinosaur. The sole reason that I am still hesitating is the huge amount of data and plots that I already have in KD format (the data requires some work to transfer to other formats, the plots are not transferable). In conclusion, on top of the (even more ridiculous) entry price of $200 !!!!! I don't recommend to join the KD club at this time.

Try DataGraph. There's a slight learning curve, but it's a free demo and produces the absolute best graphics. The developer is also extremely responsive on the support forums and has offered free or very reasonable upgrade pricing.

Do they really ask $200 for this 4.1 updater ? If this is indeed true, it is ridiculous, at best.

I used to love KGraph but got frustrated with the slow pace of development. The one thing that kept me coming back was the user-defined curve fit feature I didn't find elsewhere among similarly priced software. If this is important to you, you may wish to invest some time in learning about gnuplot's curve fit options that are more powerful than KGraph's, although with a bit of a learning curve. But hey, it's free.

try veusz as capable as gnuplot minus 3d plot but with a gui.

I have used KG for quite a long time, and (still) like it very much, but to ask $59.95 for upgrading into version 4 does not make any sense to me. As a loyal long-term customer of KG, I am not willing to spend so much money on (basically) cosmetics. Although I have already started checking other graphers on the market, I am still curious to hear from the developer why have they decided to lose me.

A long hoped upgrade but quite disappointing. Only cosmetic changes (menus are still the old MacOS 7 design, while the interface is WinXP-like. Also some graphical problems under Tiger in the "speadsheet" sometimes. Just don't see why it is a "worth-have". Not worth the upgrade; Please, give us a real update. Too bad from such a company. Money is not that easy.
