Suggestion: Improve OptiSystem Reporting/Plotting
After using OptiSystem for a research project, I have found that the report and plotting functionality is quite lacking. When plotting curves from multiple layouts (e.g. BER vs. fiber length), the curves are named after the variables used. When multiple of the same type of curve are plotted, the legend simply repeats the same string for all curves. There is no legend editing capability as far as I can see, which limits how useful the report function is. I found that I ended up having to export the data and use Excel or Matlab to plot it so that I could have a meaningful legend. Another function that would be helpful is the ability to select data on the plot. In Excel, clicking on one of the lines or points will tell you what dataset it came from. Perhaps these aren’t common issues, but for me it greatly increased the amount of work required to get a plot from simulation data.
