Did you know . . . How to Export From OFS to MATLAB®?

Researchers often wish to export data from a file being analyzed in our Offline Sorter™ software to a MATLAB® file. Occasionally, when attempting to export in this manner, the MATLAB radio button is greyed out, thus inaccessible. There is a simple remedy to this situation. A new entry in the Windows PATH variable may need to be created so that specific MATLAB files can be accessed properly. Once this path setting process is completed, the “Export to MATLAB” radio button, that may have been greyed out previously, is now enabled.
The document MATLAB Export Troubleshooting Guide outlines the steps to accomplish this. Should you need further assistance, email support@plexon.com.
