Parameter Editor

The parameter editor is used to modify the parameters that control the scanner's operation. This is where you adjust the exposure, the scan windows, the calibration fixtures, and the synchronized scanning parameters. The parameters are described in a separate document.

If you click on the Open icon, you can open a different parameter file. The default parameter file is param.dat in the directory you started JSDiag from. In the File menu, you can use "Save as ..." to save the parameter file with a different name. Saving the parameters will first save them to disk, and then to the connected scanners. If there are any errors parsing the parameters, then the scanners won't use the parameters and a dialog box will display the errors in the parameters:

Messages will show up in the bottom-right corner. Normally the current line number is displayed. When the parameters are successfully saved, "Parameters saved" is displayed until the cursor is moved.
