Active Cell and Cursor
There are two highlighted points. Green is used to indicate the current engine speed and load point that the motor is operating at. This is the active cell. The selected cell has a thick black border and shows where changes will be made.
The four arrow keys move the cursor along the axes when either the map or the map data windows are selected. The arrow keys will behave as expected based on the window that is selected.
Tracking mode is an alternative navigation mode in which the selected cell always follows the active cell automatically. This is useful in cases where you wish to make changes only at the current active cell without having to constantly chase the active cell with the arrow keys. To use tracking mode, right-click on the 3D Grid Map and select “Tracking”, or use the hotkey F8.
Note: The arrow keys cannot be used to move the cursor while in tracking mode.
Editing the 3D Grid Map is simple. To edit a value, double-click on the value you would like to edit. Then type the desired value. To save the value, press Enter.
The four basic arithmetic functions can be used to adjust any selected cell(s) in the 3D Grid Map. This function also works with multiple cells. To select multiple cells, click and drag the cells you wish to select.
To add a value to a cell, press the “A” key or right-click on the cell you wish to edit and select “Add”
Press the S key to directly enter a value to subtract from the current cell:
Press the M key to directly enter a value by which to multiply the current cell:
Press the D key to directly enter a value by which to divide the current cell:
Note: The V key is no longer used as a shortcut to divide.
The Edit→Select All menu item or Ctrl+A can be used to select all of the cells in a map:
To interpolate a region of cells, select a block of multiple cells to perform interpolation across, then right-click on the selected cells and select either “Interpolate Rows” or “Interpolate Columns” depending on the situation. The “X” key will Interpolate Rows and the “Y” key will Interpolate Columns.
As the track point moves, it leaves a trace of bolded values to indicate which cells of the map have been used:
This trace can be reset by selecting Tools→Clear Visited Cells
When editing changes are made to cells, the cell values are highlighted in red:
Note: Red edit traces cannot be cleared unless the map is saved and uploaded to the unit.
