Fig. 455 Screens Menu - Overview

In the Screens menu, the user can organize its measurement screens. By a single click on the icon, a small overview about all created measurement screens will appear like it is shown in Fig. 455. The user can add and delete measurement screens by clicking on the + and signs on the lower end of the Screens menu.

To change the currently displayed measurement screen, just click on the desired one in the overview. It is possible to change the order of several measurement screens by selecting the respective screen and keeping the mouse button pressed for 2 seconds. After two seconds, the blue frame will become bold. Now it is possible to change the order of the selected screens to any desired position by keeping the mouse button pressed and moving the screen.

If several monitors are used, it is possible to undock a screen and move it on another monitor. Therefore, the user must select the desired screen and keep the mouse button pressed for 2 seconds again. When the blue bold frame appears, the user can move the screen to another monitor and release it there.

The yellow cursor which is displayed in the Overview bar and the Recorders is linked to all instruments on any screen. I.e. If the yellow cursor is moved in a Recorder on screen 1, the value displayed in a Digital Meter on screen 3 will update according to the actual position of the yellow cursor position.

Note

The system performance may slow down while the Screens menu is partially open.
