Important Note. The changes you make in the setting will not appear in the plot or statistics until the data is reprocessed. COMPASS does not automatically reprocess the data unless the data itself has changed. For this reason, you may have to force the data to be recompiled or closed. You do this by setting the Process Options and then pressing the “View” button. Also, options such a Breaking Loops can be hidden if the data is closed. This is because the loop error will so small after closing that now break will be visible.
