The term "copy and paste" refers to the simple method of reproducing text or other data from a source to a destination. The simplicity and ease with which users can move data between various applications has made this function very popular in many computer applications, including our own EFILive software.

There are many areas within the EFILive software where "copy and paste" functions can be used to save time and increase data transfer accuracy. Some areas include:

  • Copying PID selections between the [F5: BBX] window and the [F2: Scan Tool] -> [F2: PIDs] window (and vice versa).
  • Copying PIDs between controllers, where unsupported PIDs in the destination controller will not be copied.
  • Copying selected Scan Tool data to an Excel spreadsheet.
  • Copying V7 PID selections from the V7 Scan Tool into V8 Scan and Tune software. Using the V7 Scan Tool, select one or more PIDs on the [PIDs (F8)] tab, then navigate to the menu option: Edit->Copy for export to V8. Copied data can be pasted into V8 software on either either the [F2: Scan] tab or the [F5: BBX] -> [F2:Scan] tab.
  • The V8 Scan and Tune option "Copy As Text" feature can be found by right clicking on selected PIDs, and is ideal for creating a list of PID names for an external document. Customers can also copy and paste parameter values from one table to another using single cells, rows, columns or table data selections.
  • Various arithmetic options (addition, subtraction, multiplication and error correction) are available via the right-click menu on each calibration map. Each option applies the described modification to the data values as they are pasted from the clipboard into the calibration map. The "custom %" referred to in some of the options may be configured under the Edit -> Properties -> Options menu selection within the V7 Tune Tool.

EFILive employs standard copy and paste methods, with options including Ctrl+C Ctrl+V keyboard shortcuts, right click Copy/Paste selections, selecting a range of data utilizing Ctrl and left mouse clicks to highlight specific data, and Shift with left mouse clicks to highlight ranges of data.
