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
188.8.131.52 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” 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”.
