Notes and annotations

Capture notes describe the entire dataset. They are typically used to record setup conditions and make general observations as the capture progresses.

Annotations refer to specific points that you select on the graph.  Click the Add annotation button Add Annotation button icon to add a note and specify the direction of the callout.

Another really useful feature is that annotation history is recorded and listed in chronological order in the annotation pane. Clicking the Show in graph button Grey Show in graph button zooms into the event in the graph display. Annotations provide a useful way of bookmarking events, questions and discussion topics when sharing .picolog files with colleagues. Further mouse clicks on this button continue to zoom into the event to see greater detail.

Annotations can also be permanently deleted with this button delete icon in the shape of a grey bin
