Exchange axes

Choose the axes you wish to exchange from the "Exchange axes", and click "OK". All of the incidences of the first address in a line will be changed to the second, and vise versa. You can exchange values between any axes. Just select "Custom axes" item from the "Exchange axes" group and type type your axes names.
