Using a previous slide's graph in the Sketch Tool


I know that you can copy the graph from a previous slide onto a new slide. But I don’t see that option when using the Sketch Tool and selecting a graph as the background. Is this an option? I don’t want to use the URL method of copying a graph over because I would like the sketch to be based on the graph the student creates on the previous slide.

Thank you!


You can set any graph as a background image. First select background type: editable graph, then in the CL script:

background: graphLayer(graph.calculatorState)

Where “graph” is the previous graph component’s name.


Thank you!! This worked wonderfully!
