Applied Parameters: None
This command is used to copy the selected waveform from the Waveform Analysis window, to the SimData Editor's internal clipboard.
This command can be accessed from the SimData Editor by:
- Choosing the Edit » Copy command from the main menus.
- Clicking the button on the SimView Standard toolbar.
- Using the Ctrl+C keyboard shortcut.
First ensure that the waveform you wish to copy is selected. This is achieved by clicking on the waveform name (a selected waveform will become bolder in color and have a dot to the left of its name). Then, simply launch the command and the selection will be copied to the clipboard.
- If no waveform is selected, then the active wave plot (and all waveforms therein) will be copied.
- When a waveform is selected, filtering is applied, using the name of the waveform as the scope. All other waveforms in the active chart with different names will be masked (becoming dimmed). The extent of the masking - how dimmed the non-selected waveforms become - can be controlled through the use of the Mask Level slider bar, accessed by clicking the Mask Level button, located at the bottom-right of the Waveform Analysis window. If more than one waveform of the same name exists in the active chart, the non-selected instances will remain fully visible.
- Altium Designer does not use the Windows clipboard for normal copy operations in .sdf documents. Instead, a separate internal clipboard is maintained for this document type. Also, the internal SimData Editor clipboard is entirely independent of the internal clipboards used by the editors of other servers. You can only copy and paste between, or within, .sdf documents.
- If you wish to copy the active chart as a metafile, for use in other applications such as MS Word, use the Copy To Clip command.
