    I would like to know how to plot 3 column data such as : time, current and voltage on one single plot or picture.
    So far Y and Y2 axis are linked by a bug? and cannot have different scales and settings.

    labplot version 1.5.0, mandrake 10.0 and gnome 2.4.1


    thank you for providing a linux open source alternative to Origin.

      All curves in a plot are scaled the same. You could use the "scale" and "shift" to change the Y2 axis but if you want to have independant curves you have to overlay two plots.

      Just use Plot->New 2D Plot and Appearance->Overlay Plots to do this.
      You can find an example at
