Start the ODS Graphics Designer

The SAS ODS Graphics Designer is an interactive graphical application that you can use to create and design custom graphs. The designer creates graphs that are based on the Graph Template Language (GTL), the same system that is used by SAS analytical procedures and SAS ODS Graphics procedures.

You can start the ODS Graphics Designer from the SAS menu or by using a macro.

  1. Start a SAS session.
  2. Do either of the following:
    • In the SAS windowing environment, select Tools > ODS Graphics Designer.
    • Submit either of the following macro statements:
      %sgdesign;
      %sgdesign()

When you first start Designer, the Graph Gallery opens automatically so you can choose a graph.
