Hi and thank you for your post.

If you press the space waveform to pause a signal.
Then click on "File-> Save As" choose a name. It will save it as .psd format which can then be loaded on PicoScope at any time.

If you require any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards

Hi thanks, i probably didnt explain what i wanted properly. I need to freeze and go back to view the samples that have been stored and how many samples does it store? are the captured traces stored in a buffer?

Hi sorry for the confusion.

The only way you can view previous waveforms on the current version of PicoScope, is to do a Save On Trigger. By default you can view 100 captures, although this can be changed in the ini file.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards
