One way is to select the cell containing the graphics, use the Convert to
PICT... option under the Graph menu choice, copy the converted cell to the
clipboard, go to an open Canvas window, and Paste. All controls over PICT
objects will work, including polygon editing of any curves (so you can fake
data) text editing, etc. Good luck.
