can I edit .plw files and re-open in Picolog-Player

Postby Jeff Spedding » Sat Aug 14, 2010 11:09 am


Is it possible to edit a Picolog.plw file already containing data to modify some of the text for re-publishing? I have a couple of "confidential" names which I want to change on the Picolog display graph but I still want to show it as a "Picolog" display. I tried editing channel names in Win-editor but on saving the file it would not re-open in Picolog Player. I know I can transfer to Excel.

Unfortunately you cannot edit the plw file, any modifications to the file may corrupt it.

What you can do however is go in the graph or spreadsheet view and only view the channels that you wish to see by clicking on the multi-coloured bar on the right hand side.

You can also view only the channels that you want in the main view, by selecting "Settings -> Monitor".

Hope this helps.

Kind regards
