Marker Scale & Values on Display

Michael 2021/02/02 11:16

I'm trying to learn to use the NanoVNA (SAA2N) that I have and working on measuring some CMCs (thanks to Dave E for his helpful info) but there is one thing that keeps stumping me.

I have 3 Traces Active; 0, 1 and 2, along with 2 markers that I'm using on the display of the VNA.
Scale & Values for all 3 traces show up at the top in the appropriate color for each trace.
When I touch on one of the markers to move it, the Marker to a different frequency, the Values show up for the markers. OK fine...
However, I can't figure out how to get BACK to the original Scale & Value for all 3 traces.

So far, the only way I can get back is to save the Config, reboot and Restore the configuration. Then the 3 Scales & Value will show up again.
There's got to be an easier way, but I just can't find it.

Maybe it could help you.

Thanks for the reply. I had seen that document before (and saved it to my iPad in my Acrobat App for future references).
I did go through it again, in pretty good detail. In all honesty, I learned a couple more things about the VNA, clarifications on channels, and things like that.

However, I didn't find an answer to my question.
When you start up (I'm starting from a saved configuration) The Active traces show up in color, along with the Scale & values for each.
If you touch one of the markers with the stylus, the Active traces at the top are replaced with the Marker information, Frequency & Value. Touch another colored marker and it's Freq/Value shows up.
I can't find a way to get back to the original Active Traces with the Scale & Values for each.

I figured that since you changed it by touching a marker, there should be another touch to return it, but I've been playing with it for over a half hour and the only way I can find to return, is to restart the NanoVNA & restore my configuration.
I also went through the "Marker" menus, and all the other menus, but couldn't find a way to get back to the Scale/Values.

I'm running the SAA2N Owocomm, Version git-20201117-9659de4 (Build date Nov 17, 2020)
