```Hi, David

If you only want to "see" the transposed plotted graph (i.e. by eye), I
have an idea. Suppose you first make a plot of some function, say,
Sin[x]+x:

h = Plot[Sin[x]+x, {x, 1, 10}]

(here you assigned the graphics output to a symbol). Then you can use it
to get a transposed graph as follows:

Show[h /. {x_?NumberQ, y_?NumberQ} :> {y, x}]

On my computer it works perfectly. Hope it work well for you, too.

Good luck!
