This article describes how to configure the Real-Time Plots to custom settings.


  1. In QC-CALC Real-Time, go to Tools > Options > Configure Plot Settings > Items To Show.

  2. Choose how many points you want to be displayed in each plot at one time by typing a number into the Plot Points box.

NOTE: Any off screen plots still exist and can be scrolled into view.

  1. Choose the Calculation you want displayed in the lower left corner of each plot.

NOTE: This label will only appear if there is room on screen.

  1. Choose the amount of Plot Detail to be shown on each plot by checking/unchecking the boxes corresponding to various visual components such as Control Limits and Spec. limits (tolerance).
  1. Optionally, display Sigma Zones by either line or by color. You can display any combination of 1, 2, and 3 sigma.

  1. Type the number of points to use when determining the background color of the plot. Typically, this number will be set to 1, but if you inspect a lot of parts, you may want to change the color if any of the last 5 parts are bad.

    You can also use the sub-group average to determine plot colors. This option is checked by default.
  1. When finished click OK.
