I don't understand what do you mean by changing the number from 11 to 12 (on first page)? Do you mean changing the number of "Plots shown" under the "Properties" ->"Appearance" ? That doesn't work for me... The plot definitions are still there even I deleted the name of the plot.
I have confirmed this behavior - changing the plots shown value in the graph properties in LV 2009 has no effect - changing it in LV 8.5 removes any nameless plots from the definition list. Also of note is that in LV 2009 at least you can't have nameless plots - they show up as "plot #".
So is there a way to delete plot definitions in LV 2009? I've not seen one, and I have the same use case as Thoric originally posted here. Since in my application I might theoretically have to deal with over 2500 plots, I would really like to get rid of the ones not in use and not have them on the scroll list...
Are there any news regarding this issue?
I tried the cell_plot_tester2.vi example: it works as long as you don't increase the number of plots by dragging the border of the legend.
Lets say now you have 3 plots shown in the legend. After that, number of plots you can see in the properties of the graph is always greater or equal to 3, regardless of how many plots you remove by a second FOR-Loop. There is also no way to remove this plots by editing properties. Neither reducing the number of plots by dragging the border of the legend helps.
The same behavior in both LV 2009 and 2010.
Seems like a bug?
