Meaningful divisions when zoomed in

Post by stevenvh » Sat Mar 28, 2015 9:39 am

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:

Because PicoScope divides the range in 10 divisions you get the weirdest division markers, like in the screenshot: 75.34 ms, 80.65 ms, 95.95 ms, etc. These are completely meaningless and useless. Wouldn't it be better to have division markers at more rounded numbers, in this case at 80, 90, 100, 110 and 120 ms? I don't care that there aren't exactly ten of them, nor that the window doesn't start at a division marker. The "500ms/div" indicated in the toolbar isn't valid anyway. Maybe you can use divisions of 80, 85, 90, 95, etc ms, in order to have closer to ten divisions.

This is already under discussion with the development team, and while it sounds a simple idea it would have implications on other sections of the code. Therefore it needs careful consideration before any implementation.
