Tip of the Day Home

By default, when you use the tuner in the NI AWR Design Environment, schematic/system diagrams update and graphs update at each point the tuner uses.   In this mode, layouts do not update until the tuning operation is done.  There are additional modes for the tuner.

  • Hold the CTRL key to update layout at each point. 
  • Hold the SHIFT key to get updates when you release the mouse. 

Please see  Tuning for documentation on using these modes.

Example Demonstrating the Differences

Click the button below to open an example project that will demonstrate these concepts. If you want to try yourself, just open the tuner (select Simulate > Tune) from the menus.  

The buttons below have a pause before each update so you can visualize the change. When you tune, it will be much faster than is shown in this example.

For the buttons below to work, make sure to enabled Guided Help from Help > Enable Guided Help within the AWR Design Environment. Once enabled, you might have to refresh this page.
