Hi Allin,

Thank you for following up on the question about editing a 3D plot generated in Gretl and your suggestion to get access to GNU script behind the plot. I tested it, and it functions. Maybe someone with experience with GNU could provide us less experienced with some links to examples of complete 3D scripts? Just a suggestion.

In most cases when you call for a 3-D plot via the GUI you'll see a
checkbox -- checked by default -- to select interactive mode. This
allows you to manipulate the plot. (This option will be missing only
if the installed gnuplot version doesn't support it.) However, if you
want to see the gnuplot commands here's what to do:

* Uncheck the "interactive" box. Then the plot will appear in a native
gretl window. By right-click or via the "hamburger" menu you can save
the plot "as an icon".

* Open the Icon View window, and right-click on the plot's icon. As
usual, you'll see the option to see (and edit) the gnuplot commands.

I've now added a note to this effect in the help text for the 3-D plot
selection dialog.
