Measurements Panel

The Measurements Panel shows the measurements which have been made or loaded and information about them, including a thumbnail of the frequency response. The name of the file the measurement was loaded from or has been saved to (if it has been saved) is also shown. Individual measurements are selected by clicking on them. Measurement notes can be shown in the list using the View preference Show measurement panel notes or by hovering the mouse over a measurement, when they will appear in a tooltip.

Measurements can be rearranged by dragging them to a new position in the list, either individually or by selecting multiple measurements by Ctrl+left click or Shift + left click and dragging the group. If the measurement list has focus (blue border around the current selection) keyboard shortcuts to select all (Ctrl+A), cut (Ctrl+X) and paste (Ctrl+V) may also be used. Pasted measurements are placed before the currently selected measurement or, if there is no current selection, at the end of the list.

The background of some measurement types is tinted to help distinguish them.

Measurement actions

Right clicking on a measurement panel brings up a set of controls to save, remove, change the trace colour, lock or disable the measurement, change the measurement's name, view and edit its notes and apply other actions. The panel also shows the mic/meter and soundcard calibration files that were used (hover the mouse over that text area to bring up a tooltip that shows the full text width). When the panel opens the measurement name will be selected, ready for editing. Use Ctrl+TAB to move from the name to the notes area. Ctrl+TAB again will update the panel for the next measurement in the list, wrapping around at the end. Use Ctrl+Shift+TAB to move backwards through the panel/list. To quickly edit just the measurement's name right click over the name area, a text field will be shown to edit the name.

The text box at the top of the right click panel is used to change the name of the measurement. The length of the name is limited to the width of the box. If a blank name is entered, "No Description" is used. The name is shown in blue for new measurements or measurements with unsaved changes.

Disabled measurements are skipped when using the next/previous measurement shortcuts (Alt+up/down and Ctrl+up/down) and are not shown on overlay graphs. All measurements can be re-enabled via the Enable all measurements action or by using the Ctrl+E shortcut. The Ctrl+D shortcut disables the currently selected measurement.

Locked measurements cannot be deleted, the remove action is disabled and a padlock icon is shown on the measurement panel. All measurements can be unlocked via thee Unlock all measurements action or by using the Ctrl+U shortcut. The Ctrl+L shortcut locks the currently selected measurement.
