Re: Horizontal scrollbar wanted

Only when I disable the analog sub view. 2015-05-13 18-00-33.png There's a lot that's missing when you disable the analog sub view: no cursor info window, no timing measurements, the decoders which appear in the analog sub view instead of the digital one, and now no scrollbar with the analog sub vie...

Re: dozens of triggers missing

I wanted to do an uninstall/reinstall of the software (BTW v6.10.16.2), to see if there was anything with the settings mixed up. However, after reinstall I noticed my settings had been preserved (timebase, sub views, channels,... Even the window size). So I took out Revo Uninstaller Pro, which also ...

Re: dozens of triggers missing

The signal is a 1 pulse per second PWM signal, pulses are 100 or 200 ms wide (it's DCF77). I don't see any data scrolling through the first division pre-trigger. It's just the previous data which appear frozen. When I setup my scope anew it works as expected, but after I loaded the .psdata file the ...

Horizontal scrollbar wanted

At the moment it seems the only way to move left and right in a zoomed-in window is by dragging the rectangle in the Zoom Overview. This is OK if you've only zoomed a factor of 2 for instance, but with deeper zooms (like x 1000) it's impossible to move just a fraction of the window width. A horizont...

limited timescale in persistence mode

In scope mode I can have a timescale of up to 5000s/div. I found that in persistence mode this is limited to 20ms/div. Is there a reason for that? Or is it a bug? (As it happens, for my current measurements I need 50ms/div.)

Re: 1 2 5 scaling for X and Y option

I've asked before for a more logical div representation when zooming. Doesn't have to be 1,2,5 for me. Just don't align divisions on 9.32 seconds or so. Can easily be solved if you don't require a window to be exactly 10 divisions. But I faced more serious problems, like half of your measurement too...

dozens of triggers missing

I have a signal that gives a pulse once every second. My window is set to 1s/div, and the trigger position at 10%. So after a trigger it takes 9 seconds to fill the window. Then after 1 or 2 seconds a new trigger should be seen, and a new window written. But it takes up to 30 seconds before a new tr...

bug in sizing sub views

I have a window with analog and digital sub views enabled. I'm also using cursors, so that small window is also visible. I try to reduce the height of the analog sub view by dragging the splitter up, but it won't go beyond the cursors window. Fine, I can live with that. I move the cursors window up,...

Serial decoder table bug

When I change the data format for the serial decoder table in the decoder dialog, it only takes effect after I switch off the table view, and switch it on again. Seriousness: slightly annoying (after I found out that I can change the format by right-clicking in the table header as well. Which does t...

Serial decoder data not shown when analog subview is off

I reported before that the cursor window with the times disappears when you switch off the analog subview. From the reply I gathered this is a known bug. Now I notice that also my serial decoder data (i.c. UART) disappears when I switch off the analog subview, but have the digital subview enabled. T...

Re: "serial decoding is not supported for this sampling mode

It looks like I can't reproduce the error. For the moment the decoder does its job. I'll send you the .psdata file when/if it happens again.

"serial decoding is not supported for this sampling mode"

I'm using my 3200D MSO in digital mode, and want to decode the UART data on one of the channels. But PicoScope says serial decoding is not supported for this sampling mode. Please change the mode and try again. And indeed, the data shown is wrong. I would like to add more information about my settin...

Meaningful divisions when zoomed in

When you use windowed zoom it rarely will happen that the edges fall on nicely round timestamps. Most of the time the result will more like this: 2015-03-28 10-17-59.png Because PicoScope divides the range in 10 divisions you get the weirdest division markers, like in the screenshot: 75.34 ms, 80.65...

feature request/bug report: cursors window

PicoScope version 6.10.16.2 I'm frequently using my 3204D MSO purely as logic analyzer, with the analog subview disabled. When I use a dual view (second for a zoom-in), I might setup my window as follows: 2015-03-25 18-03-23.png Note that without analog channels I don't get to see the cursors window...

Re: Only 1 division saved instead of full window

Hi Hitesh,
I posted a question on mathematica.stackexchange.com about the .MAP format. Turns out there's a bug in Mathematica, with the bug fixed the file reads fine.
