options for an individual graph in a multiple graph

Dear Eviewers ,

one can set options for a single graph in a multiple graph manually by selecting the individual graph and invoking "Options for selected..." in the right-click menu.

Is there a way to access options for a single graph in a multiple graph in a program?
