How to show gates on illustration plots

Remember that a gate is tied to a compensation matrix, channel selection, and scale settings, and is visible only when they are set accordingly. If gates cannot be seen in an illustration, the issue can be remedied with instructions provided in this article.

Gates must be applied before they will show in the Illustration. Please click on Apply or Apply and return in the Gating editor before configuring an Illustration.

To configure gates to display on dot or contour plots in an Illustration, turn on the Show gates toggle from the Plots menu. 




Check the gating interface to ensure the gate is drawn on the channels and settings that you expect. Next you have the option to display your desired Gate Statistic: None, Percentages, Event Count, or Gate Name from the Gate label setting.




Note: when using  colored overlay dot plots, gates can be shown but their statistic will not be shown. Create a support request to alert us if this is important for your workflow.
