Start/Stop Button Function

Postby M Ball » Wed Apr 18, 2012 4:40 pm

Hello, First- great product for size and cost PS3424
I've noticed the stop/start button function do not work as expected. Clicking either button will stop or start the scope. This is particularly troublesome when in trigger mode as there is no way to determine if the scope is active, only by selecting no trigger and then re-trigger the device.
In past software releases there used to be a moving bar indicator to show the recording status. Either an indicator or knowing that the start button will only start the scope and the stop will only stop it.

If you look carefully at the button there is a light blue highlight around the "green arrow" or the "red stop" depending upon whether the scope is running or not.

It has been discussed many times but is not down to change soon.

The Beta version of the software, which has just been released at http://labs.picotech.com/, allows this status bar to be moved to the top in case the task bar covers it.
