The OVERLAY Command

 

By comparison, the OVERLAY command lets you plot multiple series in a Window and maintain independent scales and attributes for each series. Graphs created with OVERLAY can be scrolled, expanded, and compressed independently. Using OVERLAY is comparable to using an overhead transparency.

 

The other selections in the View pull-down menu as well as the following functions are useful when working with overplotted and overlaid graphs.
