White screen on Collision Energy Regression

White screen on Collision Energy Regression benoit fatou  2020-07-03

Hi Skyline Team,

I am doing some CE optimization on a Shimadzu instrument.
After editing the Collision Energy Equation, I would like to visualize the corresponding graphs but I have a white screen after clicking on "Show Graph...".
I have the same issue when I select default equations from other instrument vendors.

Let me know if you need more information and I am happy to send you the Skyline document.
Stay safe!

Hi Benoit,
This means there is not enough space to show the graph area. The two main factors that cause this are: 1) a legend with a lot of values, 2) long x-axis labels.

Possible solutions include:

  1. Expanding the size of the graph
  2. Right-click and click Legend to hide the legend
  3. Use Edit > Manage Results to shorten the names of your replicates
  4. Right-click > Properties and use a smaller font size to reduce the size of the legend and axis labels. (Category labels in the x-axis scale dynamically to try to avoid this problem)

Hope this helps.
