The Note Pad allows you to enter a note of up to 255 characters for each trace. The Note Pad is part of the Extended Data window. Click on the Data button at the top of a trace window to open the Extended Data window and then click on the Note Pad. You can use the tab and enter keys to format text in the Note Pad. Use the up and down arrow keys to scroll the Note Pad window. Drag the mouse over text to select it.
Sometimes you want to use the same value for a parameter in more than one trace. A quick way to do this is with the right mouse button. For example, you have already clicked on the Gun Name parameter of trace 2 and you want to use the same value as in trace 1. To do so, click the right mouse button while the beam cursor is in the Gun Name edit box; this opens a menu that lets you copy the value from either trace 1 or trace 3. If you were on trace 3, the menu would let you copy from trace 1 or trace 2, and so on. This short cut works for all the trace parameters including those in the Trace window.
