Interrupting plotters

I have a dataset with 50000 examples and 84 attributes and - I must admit - I'm not always knowing what I'm doing (except learning ... )

So, I just click through the various plotters and very often, my Core-i7 doesn't come back and I need reach out to the Task Manager to kill RM.
Is there a more elegant way of doing that?

Also, I notice that the Dimensions selection box seems to work upside down.
Example Quartile plot: I see my 84 attributes listed. I select the first and shift-click on the third, expecting it would select attributes 1, 2, 3.
But rather it selects attributes 3 .. 84.

With Quartile, that's not too bad - but trying the same on 'Scatter Multiple' is desasterous ..

    Hi Stefan,

    you are right, in some situations the current implementation of the plotters has some hiccups. But be prepared for a beta release of RapidMiner during the next week featuring a brand new plotter interface which will offer a fluent user experience. You can create scatter plots overlaying a bar chart of the averages, or a instead of (or additionally to :) )  the bars a band showing the mean and standard deviation. Basically you can combine any plot with any plot and create aggregations directly in the plotter configuration :)
    And the selection of attributes shown on the plot has also been completely reworked, so the selection problem will also be gone.

    Thanks - I'm just in the process of hunting another bug, which I fixed in 5.0 source, submitted, got a confirmation that it was "more properly fixed" in 5.1 and now breaks someplace nearby. Not looking for more beta releases!

    (Sorry for the rant!; see bug reports 401, 952, possibly 720, not at all related to plotters)
