Special Considerations

The keyboard's number lock (NUM LOCK) function must not be enabled when waveform scrolling is activated.


Using a floppy disk-based data file as opposed to a hard disk-based file will adversely affect the maximum speed of waveform travel in either direction.


To achieve maximum waveform scroll speed for your particular computer if your data file of interest resides on floppy disk, and you have a hard disk available, copy the file to hard disk. If you do not have a hard disk, copy the data file to virtual disk and specify the virtual disk's “drive” letter when invoking the WinDaq Waveform Browser. Refer to the VDISK command of your computer's DOS manual (version 3.0 or greater).
