Set OMNIC Paradigm Options

Use the Options dialog to customize the spectral display, to set the number of digits used for peak area, height, and location, and to configure automatic baseline correction.

❖ To set and save OMNIC Paradigm options

  1. Open the Options dialog.
    • Desktop interface: open the Configure menu and select Options.
    • Touchscreen interface: Open the settings and navigate to the Options tab.
  2. Select New.
  3. Enter a name for the new options and click Save.
  4. Edit your settings.
  5. When you are finished editing settings, select Save to save your changes.
  6. Select Close to return to your previous screen.

The Options dialog


Customize spectral display settings

The Spectral Display group is used to set the color and line weight of spectra in the Spectra view.

  • Line Weight: Determines the thickness of the line used to draw the spectrum. Applies to all spectra shown in the Spectra view.

  • Selected Spectrum Color: Determines the color used to highlight the currently selected spectrum.

    The additional colors set the colors of spectra that are not selected.

Set number of digits

Use the Number of Digits group to set the limit for the number of digits after the decimal separator. The limit is applied to the following:

  • Peak area
  • Peak height
  • Peak location - X value
  • Peak location - Y value

Note that this setting only applies to operations carried out after the setting is adjusted. Numbers in the spectrum information maintain the settings used at the time they were recorded and are not updated to reflect new settings. For example, if you carry out a find peaks operation with settings specifying 3 digits, the spectrum information shows 3 digits. If you then change your settings to use only 1 digit after the decimal, the spectrum information from the earlier find peaks operation will still show the 3 digits.

Configure automatic baseline correction

Use Automatic BaselineCorrect in the Process menu to automatically correct tilted or curving baselines.

Set the polynomial order and number of iterations to specify the order of the equation and number of iterations to use for correcting baselines automatically.

Add a custom logo to reports

Use your own logo on reports and template reports. The image is shown on standard reports and reports you create using the Template Report tile in workflows.

Report images must be a PNG file and are automatically resized to be 120 px by 75 px.
