Requirements: A title field exists and groups exist in the selected descriptor field.
Usage: When there are too many records to read in a fancy printed list, export just the titles. This is specifically intended for exporting factor groups since the titles are sorted by the number of grouped terms they include. If you allow titles to be exported to multiple groups, titles will be prefaced with an asterisk after they have appeared in another group. You also have the option to list titles not affiliated with any groups at the end of the document if you want the document to include every title in the dataset.

Requirements: Requires VPv2020 A matrix must be open.
Usage: Similar to VantagePoint's other maps, this script displays terms as nodes and shared records or correlations (depending on matrix type) as lines between them. If the matrix has different fields in its rows and columns, they will be represented with different color nodes. Different layouts can be selected from the drop-down at the top of the sheet. Additional usage instructions can be found at the bottom of the sheet. Warning: In force-directed (animated) layout, map will continuously update and use processor power unless paused, even if you switch to another sheet.
