I've just been working on 3-dimensional pie charts in IGRAPH. They're
created with rotations appear to be 345 degrees (around horizontal
axis) and 45 degrees (around vertical axis). I find I prefer 0 and 24
I don't see any way of specifying these in the IGRAPH syntax. And I'd
hoped they'd be preserved in a CHARTLOOK file, but I tried saving one,
and they don't seem to be.
Is there no solution but hand-editing every graphical object?
If so, GRRRR! Drat it, *everything* should be specifiable in syntax, in
some form. I know that some things in the chart looks, like the
specific shading patterns, can't very well be translated into syntax;
but THEY could be specified in syntax that points to specific, and
reasonably editable files. And SPSS could come with a canned set of
specifics (analogous to chartlooks) so one could write pretty
reasonable syntax that refers only to materials supplied standard with
OK, standard rant off. For the moment.
