In uScope Navigator v4.3 and earlier, focus settings could be changed only from the Device Settings dialog. If you were in the midst of defining a job, this was an inconvenience.

Starting in uScope Navigator v4.5, the focus settings are now part of the Scan Configuration Screen.


The Scan Configuration Screen now includes a Focus Settings button at the bottom of the screen that opens a Focus Settings pop-up where you may adjust the focus settings to suit your requirements.

Focus Settings are provided for the following focus methods:

  • Fast Stack
  • Predictive
  • Exhaustive Stack
  • Predictive Stack
  • Multi-Layer

Select the Focus Method...

The Focus Settings pop-up is context-sensitive and only shows the settings associated with the selected focus method.

You must first make certain the desired focus method is selected from the drop-down menu.

Adjust the Focus Settings...

Click the Focus Settings button to open the Focus Settings pop-up.

The parameters are the same as those found in the Device Settings dialog.
