Flood plot scale

How you can change the flood plot scale in the result viewer? For example I want to show to my clients the effect in solar energy radiation transmitted through windows. But since the flood plot auto scales. I can not compare two plots with different scales.

@obuchely please use existing tags such as "openstudio" not "open-studio". Thanks.

@MatthewSteen, the problem is that open-studio is an existing tag. Or at least it used to be and auto-complete still thinks it is. Maybe Admin can fix that somehow.

@__AmirRoth__ I've noticed that too. In this case "open-studio" is not listed in the tags section, but is in the auto-fill when entering tags. FYI @Neal Kruis

Looks like they fixed the markdown username collision too @__AmirRoth__.

I know it did. @Administrator needs to clean up the tags and either delete or clean up (yikes) the auto-complete history.

The design intent for ResultsViewer was that you should be able to set your color scale and color map by either right clicking or selecting then plot properties button and going to the flood plot section. Testing this in 1.8.0 this does not seem to work correctly, I filed this bug if you want to follow the issue. The daylighting plots have a similar control.

I don't think you can control the scale in those plots, unfortunately.

You can plot the differences between two plots on a third plot that has one scale. If you select two variables, right click and select Flood variable1 - variable 2, you can get the difference plot. But whether or not your clients can understand such a plot is a question though, so it is only a marginal substitute for a control that RV should have but doesn't.
