I can get an eye diagram with the option ".options baudrate=rate". but the menu Plot Settings->Eye Diagram->Enable and Plot Settings-Eye Diagram->Properties are grayed out. I guess you can switch the normal view and eye diagram and also shift the eye location with through menu. Is there someboday who knows how you can bring up those menus?
I fully agree. The function "Plot Settings->Eye Diagram-" is dead even when the eye diagram is enabled.
Additionally the option delay belonging to the eye diagram doesn't work anymore.
These function have worked in LTspiceIV.
It's a long time since I have used eye diagrams. Thus I don't remember it has worked in LTspiceXVII in older versions.
Please send a bug report to LTspice@analog.com.
Thanks for your comment.
At leaset, the very previous version of XVII has same symptom. I remember these functions are not fully documented, then the developer disabled them intentionally for some reasons. Anyway I will report it.
I had already reported this case yesterday and I already got two answers from Mike.
1. answer from Mike
Right click on the horizonal axis and press the Eye Diagram button to set it up.
2. answer from Mike
LTspice XVII no longer requires you to set these before the simulation.
It looks like Mike has intentionally disabled this function.
Question for everybody
Is there any case where we still need this missing function from the GUI?
Thanks a lot. It is better than my expectation.
I don't care if you can call it from GUI or not, but I am wondering why they have been keeping this function half undocumented. This is one of the great features to know and works perfectly.
It looks like I was blind. Everything has been available.
Make the waveform window active and move the cursor over the numbers of the horizontal axis.Then right-mouse-click.You will get this dialog window-1.Click on "Eye Diagram".You will get this dialog window-2.Everything we missed is in this dialog-window.
Anne, you can mark this topic as solved.
