This tutorial discusses a filter that was added to SwiftVis largely to facilitate its use as a general plotting tool. Is can also be quite helpful for adding annotations into your normal SwiftVis plots. This filter is basically like a little spread sheet that you can edit. Each row in the sheet is an element. The columns represent the parameters and the values that are in those elements. This is a filter instead of a source, because it allows you to have data coming in and use the table to edit that data. Be aware that if the data input changes, the table will automatically update to reflect that and the changes you have made will be lost.
