Easily Overlooked Features - Summer 2011

 

This section is designed to highlight one or two features per issue that may be overlooked because they are not made visually obvious with a toolbar button.

Page and P field Pop Up Menus in the Analysis Limits dialog box
The Page and P fields within the Analysis Limits dialog box specify the location of the corresponding waveform. The Page field specifies which analysis page the waveform will be displayed in, and the P field specifies which plot group the waveform will be displayed in.

Right clicking in any of the Page or P fields invokes a pop up menu that provides the following operations:

Sort - For the Page field, this sorts all of the expressions in the analysis limits so that the page names are in alphabetical order. For the P field, this sorts all of the expression in the analysis limits by the value in the P column.

Enable - For the Page field, all expressions that share the same page name will have their status set to enabled. For the P field, all expressions that share the same P value and the same page name will have their status set to enabled.

Hide - For the Page field, all expressions that share the same page name will have their status set to hidden. For the P field, all expressions that share the same P value and the same page name will have their status set to hidden. A hidden waveform is one whose data is stored in memory during the simulation, but the waveform is not initially displayed in the plot. The waveform can be added to a plot after the simulation is finished within the Plot page of the Properties dialog box.

Disable - For the Page field, all expressions that share the same page name will have their status set to disabled. For the P field, all expressions that share the same P value and the same page name will have their status set to disabled.

For the enabled and hidden waveforms, a valid value in the P column must also be specified for these waveforms to be calculated. If the P column is blank, the waveform is disabled no matter what the status is set to.
