The Scatter Point menu becomes available when the 2D Scatter Point module is active. The menu has one submenu: the Interpolation submenu. Below are the commands available in this menu.

New Scatter Point Set 
Creates a new dataset.
Lock All Scatter Points 
Prevents adjusting the location of scatter points.
Scatter Point Settings... 
Opens the Scatter sets tab under the Preferences dialog.
Find Point... 
Locates a point based on ID number or text label.
Interpolation > 
Interpolation Options... 
Sets the interpolation options used when interpolating to other objects. The interpolation options are saved with the project.
Interpolate → Active TIN 
Interpolate the active dataset on the active scatter set to the active TIN.
Interpolate → 2D Mesh 
Interpolate the active dataset on the active scatter set to the 2D mesh.
Interpolate → 2D Grid 
Interpolate the active dataset on the active scatter set to the 2D grid.
Interpolate → 3D Mesh 
Interpolate the active dataset on the active scatter set to the 3D mesh.
Interpolate → 3D Grid 
Interpolate the active dataset on the active scatter set to the 3D grid.
Interpolate → UGrid 
Interpolate the active dataset on the active scatter set to the active UGrid.
Gaussian Simulation Options... 
Gaussian Sequential Simulation (GSS) is a form of kriging that can only be used for 2D interpolation and only works when interpolating to 3D cell-centered grids.
Run Gaussian Simulation 
Launches the Gaussian simulation run.
Jackknifing... 
Interpolates the active scatter point set to itself using the currently selected interpolation scheme.
Summary... 
Brings up the Jacknifing Summary dialog.
Bounding 2D Grid... 
Creates a 2D grid that bounds or contains all of the scatter points in the active set.
Bounding 3D Grid... 
Creates a 3D grid that bounds or contains all of the scatter points in the active set.
Scatter Points → Mesh Nodes 
Creates nodes from the scatter points for a 2D mesh.
Scatter Points → Obs. Pts. 
Creates observation points from the active dataset. A coverage that is set for observation data must already exist.
Merge Scatter Point Sets
Creates a merged scatter set from two or more scatter sets selected with the Select Scatter Sets tool.

Selected Scatter Point Right-Click Menu

In addition to the standard right-click menu commands, the following commands are available:

Activate 
"Activates" selected scatter points by changing the active flags in the active dataset, or in all datasets. A dialog asks whether to change only the active dataset or all datasets. If the datasets are transient, all time steps will be changed.
Inactivate 
Same as the Activate command but in reverse. Inactive points can be selected only if they are displayed via the option in the Display Options dialog.

Scatter Point Set Project Explorer Right-Click Menu

In addition to the standard right-click menu commands, the following commands are available:

Z Values → Dataset 
Creates a dataset from the Z locations of the points.
Map to Z Values 
Moves the Z locations of the points to the values in the dataset.
Zoom To Extents 
Frames the Graphics Window around the selected objects.
