5.7.3. Multiple Plots and Measurements

The following steps illustrate a simple example of multiple plots and multiple measurements:

  1. Delete all three measurements by right-clicking the Measurements folder in the Plot_1 Browser and choosing Delete All.

  2. Right-click the Plots folder in the Navigator and choose Delete All.

  3. In the Navigator, right-click the Plots folder and choose New Plot. Repeat this step so you have two plots.

    The plots display in the Navigator and there are no measurements in either Browser because you have not created any measurements.

  4. Click the Plot_1 node in the Navigator to make it active.

  5. On the Plot ribbon in the Creation group, click the New Measurement button.

  6. In the Edit Properties dialog box, change Qualifier 3 to Antenna Patterns. Confirm Type is set to the default value of XY as shown in the following figure.

  7. Click OK to close the dialog box. The measurement displays in the Browser.

  8. Click the Plot_2 node in the Navigator to make it active.

  9. On the Plot ribbon in the Creation group, click the New Measurement button.

  10. In the Edit Properties dialog box, change Qualifier 3 to Antenna Patterns. Confirm Type is set to the default value of XZ as shown in the following figure.

  11. Click OK to close the dialog box. The nodes for both measurements display in the Browsers for both plots.

    By default Measurement_1, is visible in Plot_1, while Measurement_2 is invisible in Plot_1 (because you created Measurement_1 from the Plot_1 view).

    Measurement_1 is invisible in Plot_2, while Measurement_2 is visible in Plot_1 (because you created Measurement_2 from the Plot_2 view).

    The Plot_1 Browser is shown in the following figure.

  12. To display both measurements in Plot_1, make Measurement_2 visible by clicking its light bulb in the Plot_1 Browser.

  13. To display both measurements in Plot_2, make Measurement_1 visible by clicking its light bulb in the Plot_2 Browser.

  14. Click in the Plot_2 view to make it active, then click the Chart tab on the right side of the view.

  15. On the Plot ribbon in the Chart Settings group, click Type and change the chart type to Polar.

  16. Toggle between plot views to decide between tabular and chart representations of your data.

  17. To show both views at the same time, on the View ribbon in the Views group, click Tile and choose a side-by-side tiling from the drop-down menu, as shown in the following figure.

  18. The results display as shown in the following figure.

  19. To continue this example, in the Plot_2 view, create a new measurement for the YZ antenna pattern.

  20. In the Plot_1 Browser, set Measurement_1 and Measurement_2 as invisible, and Measurement_3 visible.

  21. Using the Plot_2 Browser, make Measurement_1 and Measurement_3 visible and Measurement_2 invisible.

  22. Change the Plot_1 chart type to Polar as shown in the following figure.
