How to make custom file name for alarm save current buffer

Post by bboyes » Thu May 02, 2019 8:08 pm

Hi, I read the User Guide and Training Manual and tried to make a file name such as CS1817_PS4444_%time%_%buffer% but the file name gets ignored and is always something like 20190205-0001 (551).psdata

I thought I had a couple of months ago managed to have some control over this but not now.

Which version of the software are you using ?
I just tried Tools->Alarms->Capture->SaveCurrentBuffer with the following file name and is working for me.

Thanks... that's the menu I remember from a couple of months ago. I could not get to that last night when I tried to edit the capture options. Today I am going to pull the PS4444 out of the field site and bring it back to our office where we can have better access to it and set up a test which is more like the field.
