    New User unable to plot data to run simulation in OpenRocket

    I have constructed a basic model. However, I cannot seem to plot vertical motion vs time when selecting this preset plot configuration. The X axis is shown as time (s), but I cannot change the y axis to motion distance (m). Only time is shown. Could anyone suggest a quick solution? I'm trying to help a student complete an assignment. I have included screenshots. Thank you very much!

    Have you clicked on the small window that says "New Y axis plot type"?

    Yes, but that did not fix the problem. However, after trial and error, I realized the specifications for the rocket configuration would not allow the simulation to run. A booster section was not configured correctly. Problem solved. Thank you for your suggestion.

    Glad to hear that you were able to solve the problem yourself.

    I'd suggest for people with questions or problems with OR, it always helps if you post the file you are working on.
