Maxwell Helpful Hints
Here are some very useful hints that can help you save time in Maxwell.
Modes are "sticky"
Double-Click to Edit
A very easy way to change between edit and non-edit modes is to double click on any field label. In other words, any of the gray headings in a pane can be double-clicked to move the entire pane into Edit mode or out of Edit mode. This is much faster than using the Edit button / Done button at the bottom of the panes.
Note that the label name must be double-clicked. This will not work upon the data or contents of the pane.
Duplicate Reference Sets
If your reference sets are often setup using the same metrics, it is much easier to create a new reference set by duplicating an existing one. Find the list of Reference Sets, highlight the one you wish to duplicate, choose the gear menu at the bottom of the pane, and select "Duplicate Object."
Graphs can also be duplicated in a similar manner.
Look to the Results Summary
When diagnosing color problems in a measurement, be sure to check out the Maxwell_Color_Set_Details#Results_Summary Results Summary for that measurement. The Patch-to-patch comparison can quickly isolate where the color differs from the reference. Click the dE column twice to order all measurements starting with the worst (the highest deltaE).
