Scope’s top menu bar offers global actions and options, such as measurement control, Probe discovery, themes, and measurement settings management.
The menu bar is located at the top of the Scope main window. This menu contains useful options for saving and loading measurement settings, controlling measurements, and managing results. Each menu item is described in the following sections.
The File menu contains options for saving and loading settings.
These options are used to control the current measurement. The first four options are identical to the control buttons in the measurement control panel. Also, the Probe discovery feature can be accessed via this menu.
This option opens a dialog where Probes can be discovered automatically. Type the address and port of the central Probe and click Update to get a list of available Probes.
Using Probe discovery requires setting up a central Probe. To learn more about this functionality, see How to Discover Probes.
The results menu can be used to load and save average results or to clear all measurement results.
Clearing the measurement results does not affect measurement settings or result files.
Average results can also be selected for automatic saving during measurement, as with all other measurement result types. For more information on real-time saving, see Results Tab.
The view menu contains options for changing the visual appearance of Scope.
Hiding the Measurement Control panel is useful, for example, when a maximal amount of space is required for results visualization. Note that the Measurement Control panel can also be undocked from the main window by dragging.
The help menu contains the quick start guide and software information.
