1.  Menu Bar

Below is an overview of the menus and their sub-functions. By clicking on the menu function, you will be taken to the relevant information on that option.

To jump quickly to a specific menu, choose one above.

1.1  > File

> Load Logged Data

1. Allows you to open up to 10 .RUN files simultaneously.

OR

2. Allows you to load a .RAF (or Run Analysis File) containing the processed data and practically all the information the program uses. Only one .RAF file may be loaded at any given time.

> Load All

Loads a saved .RAF file from the disk.

> Save All

Essentially takes a snapshot of the software, saving all the data loaded, the window layout, vehicle files etc. Saves to a .RAF file.

> Advanced Load/Saves

> Save Logged DataSaves the processed data
> Load Default Vehicle OptionsLoads the preset vehicle options if you haven't overwritten them.
> Save Default Vehicle OptionsAllows you to overwrite the default vehicle settings. Useful if you're going to be using the logger for the same car repeatedly.
> Load Screen LayoutLoads a saved layout for how you have the windows arranged, including layers and settings.
> Save Screen LayoutSaves your current screen layout, including layers and settings, for later use.
> Load Variable InformationLoads variables you have previously saved.
> Save Variable InformationSaves variables you have edited and wish to use again.
> Load Markers/SectorsLoads saved track markers and sectors, useful if you have several different .RUN files for the same course.
> Save Markers/SectorsSaves your track markers and sectors for a course, so that you can use the same ones if you have a different run, for more accurate comparison and analysis.
> Load/Manage DGPS dataAllows you to use differential GPS data for more accurate analysis, read more [here]. This option is only available on the DL2 version of the Analysis software.

> Set Serial Port

This allows you to choose which serial port your data logging hardware is connected to.

> Download Data

Allows you you to choose which runs you download from your data logger.

> Export as Data…

Allows you to export the data into a .CSV file to use with excel, or a choice of .M or .MAT files for use with Matlab, or a plain text file.

> Export as video…

Opens the Video Export Wizard that allows use to export the videos generated using the VIDEO4 system or 3rd party system to several popular export formats. You can export a whole run, and arbitrary section of a run, or a particular lap or sector and then export to the target format with or without an additional overlay.

> Print Setup

Set up your printer settings, Printer, Quality, Number of Copies, Paper and Page Orientation.

> Print…

Prints the currently selected window.

> Print All…

Prints all windows open within the analysis program.

> Set Default Paths

Allows you to define where the program is to initially look for run files, configuration files and where to export data/videos to.

> Format Flashcard

Allows you to choose a Compact Flash card to format. You must have a flash card plugged in for this function to work.

> Reset to Factory Settings

resets the software to its' original, factory settings

> Exit

Exits the Analysis program.

1.2  > Data

> Run Manager

Allows you to manipulate the .RUN files loaded, change the ambience settings, load a previously saved car file and setup the video inputs. In the video setup you can load the reference video files.

> Variable Manager

The Variable Manager allows you to edit the variables used by the software. You can also create custom User Defined Variables based on current variables and constants.

> Analysis Options

Allows you to set up options regarding the analysis program.

> Lap And Sector Options

Change the settings for and add the lap and sector markers. Allows you to edit how many sectors and how they they created.

> Vehicle Options

Allows you to change the settings related to the car that was used to create the .RUN file. You can edit settings on the gears, the wheels, the engine, the accelerometers and vehicle constants.

> Clear Everything

Clears all loaded data.

> Clear All Track Markers

Removes all track markers.

> Re-Process All Data

Reloads all the data.

1.3  > Results

> Duplicate Current Window

Opens a copy of the currently selected window.

> Set Custom And Defaults

> Store Window As CustomSaves the way the currently selected window is set out for later use. Selectable from the bottom of this window.
> Set Current As DefaultSaves the way the current window is set out as the default, so when you load the window off the menus or the toolbar, it opens how you've got it currently set.
> Delete CustomDeletes a custom window you have previously saved.
> Your Custom WindowsWhen you have no custom windows saved, nothing will appear here. If you have saved some custom windows, then you will be able to select them here.

> Track Map

This opens up the track map overview window, allowing you to visually view where about the vehicle is on the track at any given time, and allows you to select points or ranges of data to analyse.

> Lap/Sector Times

Opens the Lap and Sector Times table, displaying information on the times taken for the vehicle to pass through the sectors and the laps defined by the markers.

> Selection Scratchpad

This allows you to store any areas of data that you have selected. You will then be able to return to the selected data as and when it is needed.

> Summary Statistics

Displays some user definable statistics for areas of the highlighted areas of the track. You can also see the statistics for defined laps and sectors.

> XY Graph

Draws a wide variety of graphs representing the data in different ways, for more information, see here.

> Bar Chart

Draws frequency bar charts, for more information, see here.

> Marker Based Measurements

This allows you to carry out calculations based on the lap and sector markers. Similar to the Summary Statistics window, the marker based measurements allows a basic

> Performance Calculations

This tabulates several different performance metrics for the highlighted range. You can create your own performance tables on the fifth tab, for changes in your chosen variable over distance or a change in speed.

> Values Table

The values table shows the values of all the variables associated with the selected points, or ranges.

> Quick XY Graphy

Quick XY graph offers similar functionality to the full ”XY graph” window, but can only be used to display data interactively, that is based on the currently highlighted data. It can be used to display up to 5 different variables against time or distance. (:cellnr
