Once you add the Plot Command, you can modify the Axis Settings to assign the X Tick Marks – in your case you want them to be labels from the column that contains the text of the gene names.
See screenshot – you can assign the Label tick mark (1), the column containing the numerical values on the X axis specifying the location at which the labels should appear (2), and the column containing the label text (3).

I’m not sure I understand how this addition (the backslash) is causing your methodology to fail. You probably need to post an example for a clearer understanding of your specific situation.

You can use the escape “\” (backslash) to force DG to render the underscore instead of interpreting it as a subscript instruction.
So, use “w\_air” in place of “w_air” in the column name (or whatever gets used to label the legend).

Maybe the “Smooth” Plot Action will work – see pages 28-29 of the PDF manual. The three different techniques used in the Smooth plot action (simple moving average, weighted moving average, exponential moving average) are discussed here:

Thank you for the reply! I bet that to do list is not long at all … LOL. I’d be happy to test these out should they get incorporated into DataGraph/Image Tank.

I’m glad you got it working! Odd about the legend, it should populate automatically, as it did in my example with 6 litters.
The one thing I will say is that DataGraph takes a little bit of time to understand the commands and the approach to building a plot. The level of abstraction and tokenization is very powerful but not so intuitively obvious at first glance. It is also useful as a visualizer and analytical tool for performing a variety of calculations, fits, processing, etc. and integrates with R dynamically.
Absolutely go through the exercise of recreating plots, and also take a look at all of the example .dgraph files that are part of the startup dialog. There are also helpful webinar series on YouTube that cover various concepts – I always learn something from them, regardless of how much I think I have figured out.
But more than all of that is the fact that, unlike Numbers or Excel, the devs are responsive and willing to listen and implement suggestions, features, additions, etc. Drop them a line with your current concerns and see what they say!
