Menu

Menu

To adjust settings or close the readout use the right click menu.

Menu1

The "Value" list all available values to show. With DMM's the readout will automatic track range changes for a meter.

Menu2

There is 6 standard sizes to select between, but other sizes can be used from scripting.

Menu3

A transparant background can be defined with the "Background color", but for easy access I have added this menu.
Using "Fully" means the readout only is present on the digits, this can make it a bit fiddly to move or open the menu, but makes it much easier to access windows behind the digits.
The "Fully, with background" has a invisible background with the same size as the more substantial background, this means all mouse operations within that area goes to the readout.

Using the right click menu text color, background color and transparancy can be adjusted. When using high transparancy the text quality will be better if the background color is the same as the text color.



Align

The align function is used when multiple readouts are open.

It will look for possible horizontal or vertical alignment and adjust it perfectly.
