# 2D Curve: superimposition of the curves

## By default representation

By default, all the elementary curves are represented in the tracing zone. Each of the curves has got its own graph.

## Modes of superposition

The various modes of superposition of the elementary curves are presented in the table below.

Mode | Description |
---|---|

Sorted by formula (by default) |
The elementary curves belonging to the same formula * are superposed on the same graph (this is applied only to the vector quantities) |

Splitted | Each elementary curve has got its own graph. |

Absolute | All the elementary curves are superposed on the same graph: same axes X and Y for all the elementary curves |

Normalized | All the elementary curves are superposed on the same graph: same axes X and Y for all the elementary curves and grading in percentage of quantities. |

Attention: * If the calculated quantity is a vector local quantity (e.g.:

**B**), the software calculates (and represents) 4 elementary curves (module**|B|**, and the three components**Bx**,**By**,**Bz**).## Changing the mode

To change the mode of superposition:
