I was using the 2009 version and use a feature called "Transform coordinate" to transform my Rectangular domain into Polar.
Now, I change to the 2016 version and I can't find this feature.

This feature was in "Data/Alter" menu, but in the new version is not here.

Anyone knows where I can find this feature?

Best regards

Hello Hernan,

The Transform Coordinates tool is among those not present in the UI for Tecplot 360 EX, but is still possible to use via the macro language. Below is an example to change from rectangular to polar coordinates (copy into a text editor and save it as a .mcr file):

#!MC 1400

XVAR = 1
YVAR = 2
