Waveform views are the central focus of navigating and analyzing the huge amount of captured data. In a waveform view you can Zoom quickly to different resolutions, snap to edges or beginning of packets, drop markers, take measurements and more.
Waveform View Details
The main application window has two Waveform Views permanently placed in the center. Additional Waveform Windows can be added and docked or positioned independently on any monitor (multiple monitors are supported). The Primary and Secondary waveform views are shown below.
The Center Time Bookmark (center time reference) is considered "Center" because all operations center around this point and the 'Center time' displayed at the top of the Time Division area refers to its position. In the top Graphic above the Center Time is 21.36us and the bookmark is seen directly beneath it. Although it designates the center of operations, the bookmark can be moved left or right of center to suit your preference. The '@' reference point can be repositioned by moving the mouse over it until the special cursor appears, then click and drag it.
To open an additional Waveform View, use the "Open Feature Window" button and select "Waveform View" from the menu. Unlike the primary and secondary Waveform Views, these additional Waveform Views can be docked, tabbed with other dockable windows or placed on any monitor (see Window Arrangement).
