Fit parameter factors

The definition of fit parameters in the list of fit parameters allows you to specify a factor. This number multiplies the original value in such a way that the value displayed in the first column of the list is the product of the original value and the factor. However, fit parameter values written to the batch control tables or extracted by OLE automation did not take into account the factor.

The behaviour has been improved in the following way: The dialog for fit options (File/Options/Fit) now allows you to check the option ‘Apply factor in fit parameter transfers’. If active, the factor is used in the batch control and for OLE automation transfers (in both directions, i.e. setting or reading values). If the option is unchecked, the program behaves as before.

The option is not stored as part of the configuration, but is stored for each user as default setting. Once switched on it stays on until you switch it off.

In addition, you can check or uncheck this option by new OLE automation methods called ‘apply_factor_in_fit_parameter_transfers’ and ‘do_no_apply_factor_in_fit_parameter_transfers’.
