What is a formal way of saying "move the focus from A to B" in the following context?

The two curves swap their locations when we move our focus from measure A to measure B.

My some lousy solutions are

  1. The two curves swap their locations when we switch from measure A to measure B.
  2. The two curves swap their locations when we focus on measure A instead of measure B.

    "Shift the focus." See Collocations: shift the focus (of something) the focus shifts (from something) (to something) "The focus of the conference shifted from population growth to the education of women." LDOCE ldoceonline.com/dictionary/focus_2

The expression move the focus is correct - see definition #2 (Macmillan) .

Other options are change the focus and shift the focus. The last one is much more common:
