Shapes

Shape#

Shapes can be added to a figure to highlight points or periods in time, thresholds, or areas of interest.

After selecting Annotate > Shapes click the +Shape button.

  • Show / Hide Shows or hides the shape

Only available when the Show button is active

  • Line / Rectangle / Ellipse

Determines the type of shape that is displayed in the trace

Horizontal Boundaries#

Determine left and right end of the shape

Relative To#

The reference of the coordinates for start and end point; can be canvas or earlier defined axis

Start Point#

Left end of the chosen shape (for ellipse: the left side of the bounding box)

End Point#

Right end of the chosen shape (for ellipse: the upper right side of the bounding box)

Vertical Boundaries#

Define the upper and lower end of the shape

Relative To#

The reference of the coordinates for start and end point; can be canvas or earlier defined axis

Start Point#

Lower end of the chosen shape (for ellipse: the lower side of the bounding box)

End Point#

Upper end of the chosen shape (for ellipse: the upper side end of the bounding box)

Lines#

Width#

The width of the line conecting the trace data points can be specified using the up- and down arrows for one pixel increments, or enter the width directly in the text box, which allows fractional pixel values. Values smaller than 0.1 point are effectively invisible on pixel based devices.

Color#

The line color can be set using this popup menu.

Wdith#

Continuous, dashed or dotted line types can be set using this popup menu.

Fill#

Determines the looks of the inside of the shape

Color#

(Has no effect when shape Line, only with oval and rectangle)

Choose the fill color with the standard color picker[link]

Opacity#

Determines the opacity of the entire shape
