Golden Software Releases Grapher 9 with Unicode Font Support for International Compatibility
Golden Software, Inc. announces Grapher 9, a 2D and 3D graphing program. The most popular new feature in Grapher 9 is support for Unicode fonts, which allows international users to create and display text using characters from languages other than English. Grapher 9 also comes with a 64-bit installation version. Users can load large data sets without running out of memory. Two other powerful upgrades to Grapher 9 are the ability to move any label in a graph, and the improved clipping system.
The most popular new feature in Grapher 9 is the eagerly-anticipated support for Unicode fonts. Support for Unicode fonts allows international users to create and display text using characters from languages other than English, and to save and open files with Unicode characters in the path name. Unicode characters are also supported in Grapher’s worksheet, allowing users to enter data and column headings in their native language, and to open Excel spreadsheets and display Unicode characters exactly how they are shown in Excel. This new feature is especially useful when creating graphs and plots for papers and presentations written in languages other than English.
In addition to Unicode font support, users can now harness the power of 64-bit versions of Windows® with the 64-bit version of Grapher 9. Users can load large data sets without running out of memory.
Two other powerful upgrades to Grapher 9 are the ability to move any label in a graph, and the improved clipping system. Users can now interactively move any label, including plot labels, axis labels, axis titles and graph titles – eliminating overlapping text and keeping graphs readable and informative for highest impact. Users can also clip bar charts, fit curves and confidence intervals to any specified limits. The increased customization capabilities in Grapher 9 allow users to create their graphs exactly how they want them.
Comments from Grapher customers and beta-testers after reviewing Grapher 9:
· “I am now ‘hooked’ on Grapher 9!” –Stephen Ross, Infrared Free Electon Laser Research Center, Japan
· “It really is the most flexible package out there. I tell people if you can visualize a plot, you can make it with Grapher.” –Eric Tappa, University of South Carolina, USA

We would not have been able to achieve this quality without Grapher.”
