The Trace Tree/List works in one of two ways:
- One trace is designated as the default trace. Each time the tree/list is opened, it will return to this trace.
- If no default trace is specified, the tree/list will return to the last trace selected.
To see if there is a default trace, start a new measurement and see what trace is selected in the tree/list. (If you’re using the tree, note what branch the trace is in.) Then select “Options/Edit Standard Traces…” and double-click on the trace. If the check box “Use this trace for new measurements” is checked, this is the default trace. Uncheck this box and the trace tree/list will return to the last trace selected.
