Default Options - Plot - Static Study

Sets default result templates (folders and plots) for static studies. You can include plots of different types in one or more folders with customized names.

When you run a study that does not have any existing result plots, the software creates the folders and plots as specified in this page. If you run a study that has valid or invalid plots, the existing plots are updated regardless of the settings specified in this page.

To define a result template:

  1. Click Simulation > Options.
  2. On the Default Options tab, under Plot, expand Default Plots.
  3. To add a new results folder, right-click Static Study Results and select Add New Folder.
    A new results folder appears under Static Study Results with a default name. Type a new name or click anywhere to accept the default name.
    The maximum number of result folders is five.
  4. To add a plot, right click a results folder and select Add New Plot.
    A new plot appears in the results folder. You may not change the name here, but you can rename the plot in the study level.
    To delete a plot or a results folder, right-click their icon and select Delete.
  5. Select the type of plot from the Results type drop-down menu, and the plot component from the Results component drop-down menu.
