Figure 1. Waveform Settings

From the General tab, you can configure the following Waveform Settings:

  • Radix: Sets the numerical format to use for newly-created design wave objects.
  • Elide Setting: Controls truncation of signal names that are too long for the Wave window.
    • Left truncates the left end of long names.
    • Right truncates the right end of long names.
    • Middle preserves both the left and right ends, omitting the middle part of long names.
  • Draw Waveform Shadow: Creates a shaded representation of the waveform.
  • Show signal indices: Displays the row numbers to the left of each wave object name. You can drag the lines separating the row numbers to change the height of a wave object.
  • Show grid lines: Displays the wave window with grid lines.
  • Snap to Transition: When selected, causes dragged cursors and markers to gravitate to waveform transitions near the mouse cursor. See Using Cursors for more information.
  • Floating Ruler: Displays the floating ruler whenever the secondary cursor is visible or a marker is selected. See Using the Floating Ruler for more information.
    Tip: If the Floating Ruler option appears disabled (unchecked) in the Settings dialog box, use Shift+Click on the Wave window to make the secondary cursor visible. This action results in enabling the Floating Ruler option in the Settings dialog box.
  • From the Colors tab, you can set colors of items within the waveform.
