Applied Parameters: None

Summary

This command is used to edit the selected waveform.

Access

This command can be accessed from the SimData Editor in the following ways:

  • Choose the Wave » Edit Wave command from the main menus.
  • Click the  button on the SimView toolbar.
  • Right-click on a waveform's name then choose the Edit Wave command from the context menu.

Use

First, ensure that the waveform you want to edit is selected in the Waveform Analysis window. 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).

After launching the command, the Edit Waveform dialog opens in which you can modify the existing waveform by creating a mathematical expression involving it or replace it entirely by selecting an alternate waveform from the list of all available simulation waveforms for which data has been collected.

Note

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 dim). The extent of the masking (how dim 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.
