I think the button that George added is useful though ambiguous:
it is located just between the window and plot combos and I first thought I could create a new plot with it (which is probably more common than creating a new window). In fact, to create a new plot it seems I have to:
1) select a new unique name
2) define its contents
3) hit "Apply as new" to create it

Not very intuitive I fear, especially as the plot created in this way inherits attributes from the one previously selected (like label names, which IS confusing).

Would it be possible to add another button in the same spirit for new plots, along with a vertical line to separate window combo+button from plot combo+button. Upon hittinh the "new plot" button, a sensible new unique name would be created, after which the user can edit the contents (previously initialized to empty) and then press the "Apply as New" button, which would ideally autogenerate labels if they were left empty.
Comments ?
