Opening and Saving Data Files
See Sec. 11.4 and
8.4 for details about file access
locally and on the server.
- Open Local Data File
- to open a data file on the local
file system (the hard drive, a CD or DVD, or a network-mounted
drive). About open STXM 4 data files, see
Sec. 5.18. About opening data files from the
Advanced Photon Source, see Sec. 5.19.
- Open Data File On Server
- (disabled in
display_only mode) will open a STXM 5 data file
directly on the server, over the STXM 5 network protocol. You
have only access to the microscope control computer's data
directory, not its whole file system.
- Save As
- will save the data file on the local
file system with the current display, Min, Max and Gamma
values. If you edited the Sample, Scientist and Comments
entries in the Scan Parameters popup (see
Fig. 5.9), they will also be
saved. The same is valid for editions in the pointlist window
(see Sec. 5.14.6). This option is not
available for STXM 4 or APS data files.
- Save File on Server
- (only available if the current
file was opened from the server, which includes the last scan)
will save a data file back on the server. Again, only Sample /
Scientist / Comments, the display parameters and the pointlist
entries can be overwritten.
