Charts window

The charts window lets the user create, edit and delete different types of charts, such as time charts, scatter charts or histograms. Charts are automatically updated when new simulation data is available. To access this window select Window | Charts. The Charts window title bar has buttons to create different types of charts, to edit the currently visible chart and to delete the currently visible chart.

Chart controls

Below each chart is a small panel with controls specific to the chart. These let you easily change properties like log scale, legend and plot symbols without editing the chart.
