Applied Parameters: None

Summary

This command is used to export the active wave plot - and all waveforms contained therein - in comma separated value (.csv) format.

Access

This command is accessed from the SimData Editor by choosing the File » Export » Plot command from the main menus.

Use

First ensure that the wave plot that you wish to export is made active in the Waveform Analysis window. This is achieved by clicking anywhere within the area of the wave plot.

After launching the command, the Export Data dialog will appear. Use the dialog to specify the data (Real, or Complex) to export, and the delimeter used (by default, Comma). After clicking OK, the Export Selected Waveforms dialog will appear. Use the dialog to choose where, and under what name, you wish to save the exported plot file. By default, the file takes the name of the first listed waveform in the plot (<FirstWaveformName>.csv).

Tips

  1. If the Number of Plots Visible option is set to All in the Document Options dialog (Tools » Document Options), the active wave plot is distinguished by a black solid line around its waveform name section. If the Number of Plots Visible option is set to 1, 2, 3, or 4, the active wave plot is distinguished by a black arrow at the left hand side of its display area.
  2. The waveforms contained in the plot are stored as a set of data points, with each point being represented by an X-axis (time) value, followed by Y-axis (data) values for each waveform contained in the plot.
