14.12.1 Summary Window
The Summary Window displays a graph of the minimum, maximum, and average values as a function of time for the selected expression. This summary of values can be calculated using only selected elements or nodes, or for the entire model when no elements or nodes are selected. It can be opened by selecting the Post/Summary. Figure 9 shows the Summary Window.
To select the expression to display, click on the drop-down box in the upper left corner and select the desired expression. Each data point can be selected by clicking on it. The exact values will appear next to a selected data point.
To save the summary data to file, click the Save button located at the bottom of the Summary View. This will open the File Save dialog box. After the user enters a filename, the data is saved to file as a simple ASCII file. The data can also be copied to the clipboard with the “Copy to Clipboard” option.
The Options button shows a dialog box where the user can change some options.
The graph area can be scaled or moved by click dragging the right and left mouse button respectively. The buttons in the lower left corner of the Summary window can be used to restore the x-range, y-range or both.
