ENLIGHTEN™ Manual: Chart Navigation

<< USER CONTROLS | TABLE OF CONTENTS | SAVING DATA >>


The chart display in ENLIGHTEN™ has numerous advanced features which can be accessed from a 3-button mouse. Some of the most useful include:

  • Use mouse scroll-wheel to “zoom” in and out (keeping the X:Y aspect ratio constant)
  • Drag with left (primary) mouse button to “scroll” or “pan” horizontally and vertically within the graph
  • Drag with the right (secondary) mouse button to “zoom” in the X-axis, the Y-axis or both
  • Use right-click on graph to open a contextual menu allowing you to fine-tune the X- and Y-axis

4.1.2.1 Freezing / Unfreezing the Y-Axis

By default, the Y-axis auto-scales with each newly read spectra, which can be a little jumpy in high-noise environments. You can use the “lock” Lock icon icon atop the graph to freeze and thaw the Y-axis.

Alternately, you can hold down the left (primary) mouse button and drag just a pixel or two in any direction (vertically or horizontally). This will switch both axes into “manual” mode, essentially locking the current auto-scaled ranges into place. To unfreeze the axis, just right-click with the secondary mouse button to open the contextual menu, then set both X- and Y-axis back to “Auto”.
