  2. Set the hardcopy format to a bitmap format that your word processor supports (Windows BMP, PCX, TIFF).
  3. Set the hardcopy port to file.
  4. When you have a screen image you want to save, press the HARDCOPY button to save it to the floppy drive.
Trace data:
 
    This is done through the Save/Recall Waveform menu.
 
    1. Select the source of the data to be saved. This is set in Save Wfm i.e. Ch1, Ch2, ... Ref1
    2. Select the format which you want the data to be saved. This is selected in the Save Format, selections are Internal, Mathcad, and Spreadsheet. (On the older models Mathcad and Spreadsheet may not be available)
    3. Now in the Save Wfm select To FIle and create a new file or over write an execisting one.
 
Note: If you have an older unit then you can use the conversion program, cnvrtwfm, to get the data into a format you can use. Get the converstion program Can I convert my wfm files to an open format+ such as a CSV (comma separated values) file?
