Space bar start/stop intermittently not working

Postby RYM6746 » Thu Apr 20, 2017 12:34 am

Hi all, has anyone else had the space bar start/stop button intermittently not working? It's not a major issue it's just annoying when it does happen. For instance if I'm looking at ignition and I catch a glimpse of a misfire and it decides not to stop on the space bar I have to hope I can grab the mouse and stop it before another 32 firing events have passed. I know you can extend the amount of screens it saves and all that jazz but I would just like to be able to reliably whack the largest button on the bottom of the key pad :D

In order to enable the space bar start and stop just left mouse click somewhere in the scope grid area. If you last clicked somewhere else then it might not be enabled.... thinks you are typing a space....

Absolutely Yes!

It seems to have affected 6.12.7 as it has been a "Feature" of the software previously but have not noticed it for some time.

I have noticed a correlation between the cursor position and the feature in question..... :shock:

My experience seems to point to if you leave the cursor hovering over the Stop/Go button the space bar becomes noticeably more unreliable, so may well be worth trying keeping the mouse pointer away from the bottom left corner of the screen!

It would be good to get some feedback if that solves the problem. :D I am using W10 by the way what OS are you running?

Yes you are correct when it done this to me I had the mouse pointer hovering over the channel tool bar at the top of the screen. I instantly moved the mouse pointer into the centre of the screen without pushing any buttons on the mouse or keypad and re-hit the space bar and it stopped the capture.
KEEP the mouse pointer in the centre of the screen to avoid this bug :lol:

I think mine has worked about twice in the last 5 years :?

To think I suffered in silence :) :)
