II. Plotting Data

  • Plotting data: File>load data>filename


  • Plotting two or more sets of data simultaneously: load a scan, hit "save plot" after each set is plotted. Keep track of the x- and y- scales when doing this; the scale is chosen automatically for the most recently-loaded set.
  • Changing the x- and y- scales: Edit>set> limits and styles
