    Hello, I'm running VCDS Release 18.2.1

    After saving cherry picked live data into file, reloading this file only reloads some cherry picked data not all of them. Is this a bug?

    No that's exactly as it's intended. You'll only save the data you choose to, not all of it.

    Ok I think you misunderstood. Maby I was not clear. I'll try it once again:

    As like in the given example above, I've gone ahead and cherry picked the live data I wish to view/log.
    Let say I pick exactly the same 9 pieces of live data as in the given screenshot above, would mean I pick
    001-1
    001-2
    003-2
    003-3
    003-4
    004-2
    004-4
    005-3
    006-4
    Then click on "Save Selection to file..." forum_sample

    But Now when I wish to view those same cherry picked values,
    go into [Adv. Meas. Values], click on the tiny VCDS icon,
    select "Load selection from file..." and locate the profile I created,

    I only get 3 pieces of live data e.g.
    001-1
    001-2
    004-2

    The rest is missing. That is why it looks like a bug to me.

    That's strange. What kind of module? UDS? Not UDS? Where is there file being saved? What's in the file (drag and drop it into Notepad, it's just text).

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    The used labefile was 03G-906-018-BRD.clb, I have an Audi A4 B7
    That's a KWP-2000 and/or CAN engine I was told.
    I'm not shure what you mean with UDS? I guess it is UDS

    3,4
    8,2
    10,1
    11,2
    11,3
    11,4

    I am not shure which of above are lost when reloaded, because I do not have access to the controller right now.

    I googled that part number and the results indicate it's using CAN. I'll see if I can reproduce your issue.

    Unable to reproduce here. I took the same 18.2 you're using, and this is the result of me loading prefs.a01 I saved with your exact same selections:


    Is it possible you're loading another .a01 file than the one you saved? If you want me to look into this further, I'm going to need more complete information.
    Autoscan, and step by step screenshots or video of what you're doing saving and loading the preselections.

    Hello,

    Is there no way to dump the list of available measuring values and locations to a text file so it can be reviewed while not in the car with the ignition on? From what I can tell, there appears to be zero means to get a text list of the values available for my engine without taking dozens of screenshots and running them though OCR. It's a UDS module, CAEB engine, 06H-907-115-CAB.clb label file.

    On the AdvMeasVal Tour page, it talks about using a single group for maximum sample rate. I notice value locations do start with different codes, like IDE and ENG. And there are compound locations like IDE00560-MAS04121. Is IDE and ENG two different "groups"? Or is groups a holdover term from the block days and not relevant to UDS engine modules? In which case, should I see a difference selecting only IDE locations vs selecting IDE and ENG locations?

    When using Group UDS, I seem limited to 8 values. I have a HEX+CAN USB device. Would this be improved with a HEX-V2 or HEX-NET device? I see the Tour page text about the split option. I assume then the largest split size would still be 8 for my engine module? But I could now have up to 12 values selected, or can I have more with HEX-V2/HEX-NET? If the max split is 8 for my engine, and I'm having to do two groups, it would seem I should be able to run with 16 selections.

    When logging, it seems the file name is not unique. The only variable is the number of values being captured. While appending is better than overwriting, it took me a while to figure out where some of my logs went (yes, found that while looking at the Logging Tour page). Is there a way to inject an index counter or date/time value or such into the computed log name? Or an enhancement request forum to post this to?

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Sorry, another wonder about Adv Meas Values. For a UDS engine module, do the descriptions presented come from the engine module, or from Ross-Tech? Ie, if I find a description confusing, are we all in the same boat of "who knows what the Audi eng was thinking", or would it be a question to Ross-Tech about why they used the text presented?
