Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 21 and create a scatterplot.
    In the viewer you double click on the chart and select the icon
    'Add fit line at total'
    On the properties dialog for the fit line you select 'Quadratic'
    as fit method and 'Mean' for confidence level
    In Chart Editor you then click on File - Save Chart template
    On the settings to select you scroll down and select 'Optional
    lines' and 'Fit Lines' to be saved in the template.
    However, when you apply the chart template to a new scatterplot
    will get the scatterplot with quadratic curve but with two
    straight lines instead of the conficence intervals.
    
    This was reported to IBM SPSS Development.
    Additionally when you save the setting for reference line and
    the line label with the template and apply this chart template
    to a new scatterplot you can get an error like:
    Class com.spss.vis.exception BadParameterInLineGuideException
    Bad parameter: -5.89E3+2.63*x+-1.29E-5*x*x in LineGuide
