Issue Details

I would like to copy or edit a waveform acquired using the Multisim instruments (oscilloscope). Is there a way to do this?


The Multisim Grapher (which can be found at View»Grapher) is linked to nearly all instruments and all analyses in Multisim. When an instrument such as the Oscilloscope is used to observe waveforms in Multisim, the generated visual information is displayed in both the oscilloscope interface and the Grapher. Among other useful tasks, from within the Grapher you can copy, print, export, and add cursors to the waveform. You can quickly transfer data to applications such as NI LabVIEW and Excel.
The instruments that display a waveform and share their data with the Grapher are:
  • Oscilloscope
  • 4-Channel Oscilloscope
  • Bode Plotter
  • Logic Analyzer
  • IV Analysis
  • Spectrum Analyzer

To export the graph to Excel, select Tools»Export to Excel. Select the traces you would like to export and click OK. A Multisim window will pop up providing you with information about how the data will be placed in the worksheet; click OK. The waveform data will now open up in Excel.
