printing analog artist waveforms to postscript?

Post by Karl Frit » Wed, 03 Mar 1999 04:00:00



Howdy!

It seems I have a little problem printing analog artist waveforms to
postscript, and reading them into Adobe Illustrator.  It appears that
the data has too many points, making an incredibly large file, thus,
Illustrator cannot read it in.  Doing less points just makes the
waveforms look choppy.  Is there another way to solve this problem?  I
need to be able to bring in the waveforms, and size them appropriately
for presentations.

thanks!

Hi
    Karl,

There are two possibilities.
    First you could use a raster picture instead of PS (Horrible quality in comparison)

   Or you could get the Artist calculator function to sub-sample the data for you :-
           "sample()"

1. problems with printing of waveforms in the analog artist

i have a problem with printing waves from the waveformviewer (analog
artist) in cadence v. 94/04.
the waves on the print use only the half of the paper in the middle
of this.
if i printing schematics, is anything okay, the print use the whole
paper.
my .cdsplotinit you can find as attachment.

if anyone has a idea, please mail me to

thanks
