inDEED - Editing Plots in inDEED

by Rachelle Howell, George A. Howlett

Editing inDEED Plots

Once you’ve created a plot using the inDEED tool, you have several options for editing that plot. This tutorial walks you through those editing options.

Zoom/Scroll

To zoom in on a portion of your plot, left click, hold the button down, and drag the mouse down and to the right to create a box around the portion of the plot on which you want to zoom in.

To zoom out right click anywhere in the plot area. If you have zoomed in more than once, each click will return you to the previous zoom level. For example, if you zoomed in twice, you will need to right click twice to return to the original zoom level.

You can also use the square icon on the left side of the plot to return to the original zoom level.

Viewing Traces

If you hover your mouse over the plot lines, you will see markers indicating each data point. You can then hover your mouse over each marker to see that marker’s x and y values.

Opening/Resizing the Plot Sidebar

Even if you delete the derived data from the plot, the virtual sensor that you created will still be available in the left panel and that data can be plotted either on its own plot or in conjunction with other data.
