By default the maximum number of points that can be plotted in QC-CALC Real-Time is 100, but there is a behind-the-scenes override available to increase that number. Here are the directions for making this change:


  1. In QC-CALC Real-Time hold down the Shift key and hit F8 to launch the QC-Config application.
  2. Within QC-Config, choose the QcCalcOverrides.ini tab.
  3. Click the [+] next to the PlotSettings item shown in the grid to expand to show the items under that group.

  4. Find the PointsMax line in the Plot Settings area and double-click the corresponding "100" shown in the Values column.
  5. In the next window that appears enter the larger setting for the maximum number of points you want to see and click OK.
  6. Click the OK button on the QC-Config screen and restart QC-CALC Real-Time so the changes can be used within the program.
  7. Go to the Tools > Option > Configure Plots > Items to Show area and change the Number of Parts to Plot value to a higher number. You should also see the range of allowed values shown in the label now includes the number you entered.
