math channels

Postby picoalex » Fri Jul 11, 2014 1:59 pm

Hi,
I have troubles when I have to insert a formula in a math channel section. A simple formula (A-0.1) return ERROR and freeze the process. All decimal costant return an error. I need to solve this problem 'cause I need to insert a Pressure Sensor characteristic.

What can I do?

Thanks

Have you tried using a , in stead of a .

Otherwise setting the language to English and using a . works.
After saving the math formula you can set the language back to your own language.

Ok my fault, I thought this problem was solved about 1 year ago but it still exists.

You can solve this in Windows by changing the local number settings to . for decimal separator and , for thousand separator.

I have marked the button and fields in Yellow you need to click and change (sorry it is dutch Win 7)

After you created the math formulas and saved them you can change it back to its original in Windows and still use the created formulas.

I checked both the beta and release version of Picoscope but they sit

Hi All,

The Development Team are aware of this and I have added comments from this thread to the bug report.

For now, please use the method of changing the local number settings as described by bennog and save the maths channels. If you attempt to edit the saved files using the Maths Channel wizard with the number settings set to your normal settings, the error will occur.

Many thanks,
Hitesh
