Hello again and thank you for the posts.
I have tried to replicate this issue and the following is NOT
When a waveform is downloaded containing a custom probe, it is automatically loaded into the library section of the channel options menu
This is a mistake on my behalf and I apologise.
Any waveform that is downloaded containing a custom probe
, has the probe stored within the loaded folder
of the custom probe
menu under [b]channel options
This custom probe
will remain in the loaded folder
throughout the existing session/use of PicoScope (Even when other psdata files are opened)
However when PicoScope is closed and reopened the custom probe present in the loaded folder
that accompanied the previously downloaded file will have cleared and does NOT
move to the custom probe library
Many thanks Tom/Andrew (Autonerdz) for pointing the "Loaded"
bug that does exist within the custom probes menu
Looking at a PC with a new update of PicoScope 6 Automotive 6.10.11, when checking the content of the loaded folder
in the channel options menu
there are no probes stored (PicoScope connected to PC)
If you then select File-Start up Settings-Save User Default Settings
and then close/reopen PicoScope, upon rechecking the loaded folder
in the channel options
menu “Frequency and Resistance” will appear!
These loaded probes can be moved to the library
but will continue to return each time the software is closed and reopened. I will file this as a bug immediately
Coming back to Jims original concern how the resistance probe turned up in the custom probe library
after a software update remains a mystery.
Every PC I have checked here with the latest update does not contain a resistance probe in the library folder
other than those loaded by the user.
The custom probe library
remains unique to the user and should only contain probes that have been physically placed there by the user
Could one possible explanation be the fact that resistance turned up in the loaded folder
(as mentioned above) and was moved to the library
by other users?
Remember Resistance and frequency probes only seem to appear in the loaded folder when Save User Default Settings
has been used.
What I have also noticed throughout these tests is, the fact it appears to be more of an issue with heavy users of PicoScope. Those users that use multiple features and put PicoScope “through its paces” will identify this issue as opposed to mild users who may use existing probes infrequently.
Reading this back it looks hard going so thank you for your patience and we will resolve the “loaded probes” issue.
