Editing Graph Data

Is there a way to edit the graph that RadLog produces? I am not uploading data to Radmon, just my own use. I would like to be able to remove errors in data that occasionally appear on the graph that RadLog produces. For instance, I have a geiger counter running on a fan/filter arrangement in my home. I moved a piece of fiestaware and without thinking placed it near the filter's Geiger Muller tube. I would like to remove the one minute spike that was the result.

I think the data is held within 'graphdata.xml' under the relevant day/current day in the Radlog folder in 'my documents'. It's worth having a poke about in there but remember to back up your files first in case it all goes wrong! You will probably have to close Radlog whilst you edit the file.

Edit: If you don't have an XML editor then Notepad++ does a good job.

Thank you for the reply.

I had found the file you mentioned and edited it, but RadLog appears to overwrite it with the same data. Yes, I could close RadLog down and maybe graphdata.xml will still be there to edit, but when I have closed the program in the past and re-opened, the graph is gone and I have to start over. Tried stopping the count, then clear all data using the Tools tab in RadLog, then edit. When everything is cleared, the folder that graphdata.xml is in appears to be deleted, along with the file. That did not work either. It did show the graph I want, without the one data point, when viewed in the Tools tab, but when I started the counting again, RadLog came replaced it with the same graph and my bad data point.

I do not know where the current graph data is stored, or how to edit the graph at this time. For me, not being able to delete data from the local graph (or be able to set the graph scale, override the auto scale) is the biggest issue with RadLog.

I see the dilemma. I forgot that Radlog 'resets' the graph when shutting down and restarting. As the data you edit is overwritten I suspect the 'live' graph data will be stored either in a temp file somewhere or in the computer memory itself.

I'm not sure this can be done right now. Maybe Dan can shed some light on this?

I looked at the same .xml files; there are about 8 folders per day so about 3 hours worth. I edited one from yesterday using notepad, re-started Radlog, and the edited data was retained. I think editing those files after 3 hours should work.

Did not have much time just now but took a quick look and I only see one folder for each day. I have the graph set for 24 hours.

I am looking at editing the graph that RadLog shows in the Graph tab. I have not been able to close then open RadLog and have that graph keep it's data. Am I missing something?
