Must be an easier way for protocols to be built


#1

Hey guys it seems like it is more work than it should be to setup protocols. Unfortunately the visual interface isn’t very good because my electrodes are too small.

  1. Does anyone know how to resize this?

Also maybe I can build these protocols offline.

  1. I’m not a programmer, are the protocol files something I can edit by hand?

Hey Josh,

Just to clarify is it that (A) all of your electrodes are too small or
(B) just a few are too small? Maybe you could send us a screenshot or
a device images so we can get a better idea?

One option might be to increase the size of the device image. Under
"File/Options" you can change the size of the application window.

At this time, there is no simple way to edit protocols by hand without
some Python programming.

I should mention that we are doing a significant revamp of the UI to
support programming of higher-level operations (e.g., routing of
drops, mixing, splitting, etc.) which will make it significantly
easier to program protocols. This is currently at an early "alpha"
level, but I expect we'll have something to share within the next
couple of months.
