The Sequential/Stacked Plots Startup Panel contains five tabs: Quick, Advanced, Appearance, Options 1, and Options 2. The following options are available regardless of which tab is selected.

OK. Click the OK button to produce the graph.

Cancel. Click the Cancel button to close the Startup Panel without creating a graph.
