Parent page: SimView Commands

The following pre-packaged resources, derived from this base command, are available:


Applied Parameters: Action = InAtCursor

Summary

This command is used to bring the waveform(s) closer to you, relative to the cursor position, in the active simulation analysis chart.

Access

This command is accessed from the SimData Editor by using the PgUp keyboard shortcut.

Use

Launch the command to zoom in on a particular section of a waveform. Use the command repeatedly to zoom in more.

Tips

  1. As this command is relative to the cursor position, it is a good idea to position the cursor in the desired location prior to launching the command, and then use the shortcut.
  2. Zooming is applied to all waveforms in all wave plots in the chart, and is therefore independent of waveform/wave plot selection.


Applied Parameters: Action = OutAtCursor

Summary

This command is used to move the waveform(s) away from you, relative to the cursor position, in the active simulation analysis chart.

Access

This command is accessed from the SimData Editor by using the PgDn keyboard shortcut.

Use

Launch the command to zoom out from a particular section of a waveform. Use the command repeatedly to zoom out more.

Tips

  1. As this command is relative to the cursor position, it is a good idea to position the cursor in the desired location prior to launching the command, and then use the shortcut.
  2. Zooming is applied to all waveforms in all wave plots in the chart, and is therefore independent of waveform/wave plot selection.


Applied Parameters: Action = Redraw

Summary

This command is used to refresh the screen, in effect performing a redraw of the active simulation analysis chart, to remove any undesired drawing update effects.

Access

This command can be accessed from the SimData Editor by:

  • Choosing the View » Refresh command from the main menus.
  • Using the End keyboard shortcut.

Use

After launching the command, the screen will be refreshed and the active chart redrawn.

Tips

  1. This command does not affect the current view setting of the Waveform Analysis window.


Applied Parameters: Action = InAtCenter

Summary

This command is used to bring the waveform(s) closer to you (zoom in), relative to the center positions of each associated wave plot, in the active simulation analysis chart.

Access

  • Choosing the View » Zoom In command from the main menus.
  • Clicking the  button on the SimView Standard toolbar.
  • Using the Z keyboard shortcut to access a pop-up menu of zoom commands, then choosing the Zoom In entry on that menu.

Use

Launch the command to zoom in at the center of each wave plot. Use the command repeatedly to zoom in more.

Tips

  1. Zooming is applied to all wave plots in the chart and is therefore independent of wave plot selection.


Applied Parameters: Action = OutAtCenter
