Ascalex Abscissa scale factor

Default = 1.0 (Real)

Fscaley Ordinate scale factor

Default = 1.0 (Real)

Ashiftx Abscissa shift value

Default = 0.0 (Real)

Fshifty Ordinate shift value

Default = 0.0 (Real)



  1. The function linked to this option is scaled first and shifted afterwards, as follows:
    X n e w = X o l d A s c a l e x + A s h i f t x
    Y n e w = Y o l d F s c a l e y + F s h i f t y

    with X o l d and Y o l d are values from function fct_ID.

  2. It is recommended that the final list of abscissa value in the function be increased (which means the abscissa value in the function needs to be greater than the previous abscissa value).
