When viewing the raw plots and the phase plots to the uninitiated, it's rather unintuitive to click on the buttons and know which plot you are on. Or even that the different display options might exist. Perhaps we could put a mode indicator somewhere, or changing the information in the tab heading to show one or the other.

    Yeah I think a mode indicator is a good idea. What's also confusing right now is that we have this Analysis menu which mixes things up. What I want to do is split this, e.g. into View and Analysis. Raw Data and Phase Plot are essentially different views of the underlying data.

    We do now have a mode indicator in the status bar but it's still not all that obvious.

    It occurs to me that we ought to consider making Raw and Plot modes a radio button group, still using the images we use in the toolbar buttons now. This would make it clear.

    Is this still needed?

    • priority: 5 --> 8

    I'm thinking we can still improve this, even along the lines of the radio button group. Let me raise the priority of this and give it some thought.
