How do I plot great circles in Dips?

To display all great circles for all of the poles in the main Dips spreadsheet, use the Grid Data Planes checkbox in the sidebar plot options (Plot Options > Planes > Grid Data Planes).

Display great circles for all poles

 

When you add an individual plane (Planes > Add Plane option), you can display the great circle when you initially add the plane (plane visibility checkbox in the dialog) or after you have added the plane, with the Edit Planes option.

To quickly toggle the display of all user planes and/or mean planes from sets, use the Plot Options > Planes > Major Planes checkboxes.
