You can control the waveform display using:

  • Resizing handles between the Name, Value, and waveform columns of the wave window
  • Scroll combinations with the mouse wheel
  • Zoom feature buttons in the Wave window sidebar
  • Zoom combinations with the mouse wheel
  • Vivado IDE Y-Axis zoom gestures
  • Vivado simulation X-Axis zoom gestures. See the Vivado Design Suite User Guide: Using the Vivado IDE (UG893) for more information about using the mouse to pan and zoom.
    Note: In contrast to other Vivado Design Suite graphic windows, zooming in a Wave window applies to the X (time) axis independent of the Y axis. As a result, the Zoom Range X gesture, which specifies a range of time to which to zoom the window, replaces the Zoom to Area gesture of other Vivado Design Suite windows.
    Tip: Saving a WCFG file records wave window settings in addition to wave objects and markers. Wave window settings include the Name and Value column widths, zoom level, scroll position, expansion state of groups and buses, and the position of the main cursor.
