The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:

Applied Parameters: None


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


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


First, ensure that the wave plot that you want 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 open in which you can specify the data (Real or Complex) to export, and the delimiter used (by default Comma). After clicking OK, a File Explorer dialog will open in which you can choose where and under what name to save the exported plot file. By default, the file takes the name of the first listed waveform in the plot (<FirstWaveformName>.csv).


  • 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.
  • The waveforms contained in the plot are stored as a set of data points with each point represented by an X-axis (time) value followed by Y-axis (data) values for each waveform contained in the plot.
