The "IO Graphs" feature in Wireshark 2 is so much worse than Wireshark 1. Are there any settings I can change to improve it?

The old Wireshark used to have options to change the graph display and you can change the units from bits to kbps/mbps. Is there a way I can restore this functionality on the Wireshark 2.0 client, or am I just going to have to install the old wireshark.

Also, where can I find the installation files for classic wireshark? I don't see them listed on wireshark's website.

I don't know the answer to your first question, but here you can download any version you want.

I concur. It also all good being able to say 3 is kbps, 6 is mbps etc. but when you want to compare errors to speed it is dreadful and setting it to log makes it difficult to accurately see the speed.

The installers should have an option for the legacy UI, you can skip installing the new UI entirely. Maybe it's just habit, but I find the original UI much more straightforward.

Not the same thing, but I find the new filtering method kind of weird too. Rather than something like ip.addr== (or whatever), you have to use something like regular English. It works but it takes a bit of getting used to.

Which filtering is that? I haven't noticed any changes at all to either the Capture or Display filter syntax.
