Hi all,

I have moved back to the VB-7 with Ascent 2013 software.

I know how to do notes on CSI in the software. Is there a way to do this in Ascent or do I have to work with my notes only on the VB-7?

Inputting all the notes I want using the 10 button keypad is a pain on the part of my body that sits in a chair...

Thanks for any help,

You can download the Ascent Reference guide from here:

Text from Page 45 (Sorry about the formatting).

Notes You can add notes to machines, points, locations, and individualrecordings. When you plot data from an item containing a note, the note text displays on the chart. In this section, you will learn: How to Add a Note to Machine How to Add a Note to Point, Location, or Recording How to Archive a Note How to Delete a Note Add a Note to a Machine Follow these steps to add a note to a machine:
1. Right-click the machine and select Edit.
2. Select the Notes tab to open Notes window. This tab is used to add information which will then display on all charts that show a recording from this machine.
3. Click Add.
4. Enter your note.
5. ClickOK twice.
6. Select Add, Edit, or Delete to perform the corresponding operations for notes.

I think Aubrey means adding notes on the instrument against machines you are in the process of collecting data on out in the field. Correct me if I'm wrong Aubrey. rgds.

Thanks Vibe,

You are right about what I would like.

Instead of sifting through a bunch of random notes I would like to organize the notes on the VB-7 like the notes on the CSI instruments.

Thanks for the help though,

Aubrey,

I know this is an old post, but there is a way to add notes in Ascent, ie create a master note list. Create a new Data Folder "Note Folder". Within that new folder, create a machine called "Note Library". Next Create a "point" for the machine. "Catalog". Add all you common notes to this point.  When you sent your folders to the VB, make sure you also send the note folder.   ( You can label the folder/machine etc anything you like)
