Pasting plots into worksheets

As we saw above, a plot can provide lots of information. It is often convenient to paste a plot right into a worksheet, so that the plot appears in a logical place when the worksheet is printed out. The procedure is very straightforward. Just go the Edit menu in the plot window and select Copy. Then go back to worksheet, click where you want the plot to appear, and choose Paste from the Edit menu in the worksheet. Before you do this, however, it is a good idea to resize the plot so it doesn't take up too much space in the worksheet. To resize the plot, just click and hold MB1 on the lower right-hand corner of the plot window border and drag the mouse until you have the desired size. Then you can go through the copy and paste procedure above. (This procedure for resizing the plot window assumes that you are using the mwm window manager. If you don't know what this means, then you are most likely using mwm.)
