After you have dragged items from the project tree to the analysis pane you will have data results displayed.
- If this is a single item, it will show the results of that item.
- If it crossed with another, a table is drawn (cross-tab).
When a more complex table is created, a contextual green arrow appears in the top-left cell of that table. Clicking it presents you with a list of options that can then be applied. These might include nest/unNest, grid, stack, and switch.
If the arrow is on the bottom left it controls the down dimension. If the arrow appears on the top right it controls the across dimension of the table.

1. Analysis Table Options
When relevant, table options become available by clicking on the green triangle in the top-left cell of the table.
a) Nest and unNest
Nest adds another layer/dimension into the analysis.
Switch inverts the nesting; the outer axis becomes the inner axis.
If a grid, or a series of axes with similar elements, are being analyzed, they default into a grid view where the axis labels are in one dimension, and the element labels are in the other.
Also, as you explore your data it is quite common to uncover scenarios where questions have common answers. In order to give flexibility over how these are displayed, you can decide if they would like to see these sequentially in a 'stacked form' or to combine these 'grouped together' into a grid.
If a grid, or a series of axes with similar elements, are being analyzed, they default into a grid view where the axis labels are in one dimension, and the element labels are in the other. Stack brings the elements back into the same dimension as the axis.
2. Made a mistake or want to create a new analysis.
After creating an analysis, options such as undo and reset become available in the menu bar.
After creating an analysis if you made a mistake or want to undo an analysis step; you can use the undo button that appears on the top right of the Infotols Harmoni menu bar. If the undo option is not there, this will mean there is no step to undo at present.
b) Clear Analysis
Clear analysis, located on the top right of the analysis pane, allows you to simply reset the analysis only while retaining all of your project tree interactions (like position, open/closed headers, search results or selected item).
Clear analysis also keeps your analysis settings intact.
This means you can continue with your analysis thought processes but start with a blank canvas.
Reset will clear your analysis and reset the project tree. Reset will also return the analysis table settings to the default state.
The reset button appears on the top right of the Infotols Harmoni menu bar.
3. Select multiple items in a table
Clicking on each row or column header will select items independently, however, when you are working with big tables this can be cumbersome.
Multiple adjacent rows and/or columns can be selected using the shift-click function. This range selecting ability is helpful to apply an action to those selected items or even hide them from the view entirely.
Clicking on one item, then holding SHIFT key (Windows) and clicking on another item, will result in all items in that range will be selected.
While CTRL-Click is not supported, clicking an individual row or column will still add this to the selected range. Multiple item selection is currently available in tables but not in graphs.
