pro Fit for Mac7.0.18

20 January 2021

Data analysis and plotting software.

What is pro Fit for Mac

Use pro Fit for data/function analysis, plotting, and curve fitting. It is used by scientists and engineers to analyze their measurements and the mathematical models they use to describe them. It comes with a spreadsheet editor for handling numeric and alphanumeric data sets of millions of rows and columns, a drawing editor for creating high-quality graphs and presentations of data and functions, it allows for the flexible definition of custom mathematical functions using Python or Pascal, and it provides powerful curve fitting and data analysis tools. The application is scriptable with Apple Script, Python and Pascal, and user operations can be automatically recorded in these scripting languages.

What's new in pro Fit

Version 7.0.18:
  • Improvements to dark mode compatibility.
  • Improvements to Big Sur compatibility.
  • Fixed bugs connected to the Box Plot feature
  • Fixed an issue where sometimes the preference to show the last fit result in the function preview would be switched off unexpectedly, especially when working with multi-dimensional fits featuring several experiments.
  • Fixed some issues with keeping track of the current graph.
  • Average coordinates when selecting multiple shapes are now always reported correctly in the inspector window
  • Fixed a bug introduced in 7.0.17 that would sometime cause an alert box to appear without text inside
  • Fixed another bug that was introduced in pro Fit 7.0.17, which caused a change in a value being edited in the graph settings window to be assigned to the incorrect coordinate axis if one would switch to another panel before completing the editing by hitting return or tab.
  • Fixed an issue with the way parameter names are displayed in the parameter window.
  • Fixed a bug that would lead to issues when using the "C" key to view coordinates in a graph that is using a custom scaling factor for the main axis.
  • Tabulating data from BoxPlots graph now works again, with no data missing, and no spurious, seemingly random numbers showing up at the end of a data set.
  • Fixed an issue where the minimum and maximum values in a data set got lost when creating new BoxPlots.
  • Fixed an issue with importing old drawing files from pro Fit version 6.1 and 6.2 that contained BoxPlots.
  • removed an unnecessary beep that would sometimes happen when deleting a plot in a graph.
  • Fixed a rare issue where pro Fit would not manage to auto-guess a scripting language on a new computer.
  • User scripting: Fixed the fact that the parameters "iterations" and "stopCounter" of the Fit command would not record correctly
  • Fixed an issue with setting country-specific date styles in pro Fit preferences.

The main problem I have with Pro Fit is the inability to import binary data. Igor Pro has a flexible and easy-to-use way to do this. I don't understand why the Pro Fit developers don't add this—it's really easy to do. They provide information on how the user can write importers for custom data formats, but this is a very hard task and should not be pushed on the user. (Veusz now provides some binary import capability although not as flexible as Igor Pro. And, as noted below, it isn't a general programming environment.) If Pro Fit added this import capability I would buy it immediately. A lesser complaint is that I would like to see some kind of project organization capability, where data, plots, and program files could be collected and accessed with Pro Fit in, say, a panel. BTW, the "Similar Software" list on MacUpdate is really inappropriate as they are all graphing programs. Pro Fit is a complete programming environment (as well as graphing) with both Pascal and (now) Python. (As another commenter noted, the Python addition allows full access to NumPy and SciPy, a very big deal.)

6.2 is a very significant update. pro Fit has been "integrated" into Python. Now you can write programs as Python scripts where the pro Fit functions and commands are just part of a Python library. This means for example that you can incorporate all the SciPy and NumPy functionality. It makes pro Fit instantly much, much more powerful. With these additions it should compare favorably with Igor Pro (which I have never used).

please note that version 6.2's system requirements, according to pp.10 of its manual are ,"System Requirements: pro Fit 6.2 has been developed for Mac OS® 10.6 or better. Compatibility with earlier systems has not been tested, even though pro Fit 6.2 will probably also work (mostly) on MacOS 10.5." plus the beta version of 6.2 also needs a valid rego. code for version 6.1

Had to post a review for this outstanding application to counterbalance the idiot "frustrated statistician" below.

With all the features you get for $95 (what is the cost of competing packages?), its intuitiveness (how fast do new users learn Igor?), and the good stability and user-support, this is an amazing program and I can only give it maximum rating. Great value for your money, great useability, and it provides 98% of all the features you will ever need for data and function analysis purposes in a very accessible (and easily expandable) way. It is much better to get 98% of what you will ever need in a package that is so approachable that you won't forget how to use - rather than to get 99% at the cost of a complicated and difficult to learn program.

Good program. But, note my ease of use and feature ratings are both high even thought I believe for many users it will be rather low. Basic graphing is on par with the old Cricket Graph 1. But, I rated features high because it is highly programmable. It is much easier to get started in that Igor Pro, but not as powerful. People who don't read the clear instructions on the site for the difference between demos and betas shouldn't have their ratings counted.

I´v ebeen using pro fit for severla years now ,and it´s the perfect replacement for DeltaGraph. Granted, it doesn´t support as many chart types as DeltaGraph but is moe powerful due to its Pascal programming. I´ve used to teach calculus as well as programming and it is one indispensable tool.
