Creating Custom Worksheets


00:00 The package specific work sheets are probably going to be sufficient for 95% of users, but you do have the option within Tune to create your own completely customised workbooks and worksheets.
00:13 This is a better solution usually than making drastic changes to the supplied worksheets.
00:20 We can start by selecting our custom Workbook and you can see we start with a single worksheet aptly labelled ‘Worksheet’.
00:29 If we need to add more, thats as easy as right clicking in the tab area at the top of the screen and selecting ‘New Worksheet’.
00:38 Alternatively we can do the same job by going to the Layout Editor and clicking ‘Add Worksheet’.
00:45 In Layout Editor we can also add another user ‘Workbook’ if you want to separate your custom worksheets.
00:53 The next job we are going to want to do is to give the worksheet a sensible name so we can easily navigate around.
01:01 If we right click on the tab of the worksheet we want to rename, we can select ‘Rename Worksheet’ and name it appropriately.
01:10 In this case we are going to call it ‘Fuel Tuning’.
01:14 Now we can add some components to let us do this particular tuning job.
01:20 If we click on the ‘Add’ drop down menu, a list of the possible components will be displayed.
01:27 The component you choose will depend on what you want to achieve.
01:32 In this case we are going to add a ‘Calibrate’ Component by clicking on calibrate.
01:38 A box will open that we can now use to configure what we want the component to calibrate.
01:44 We want to calibrate the engine efficiency table, so we can click ‘Add’, and select this from the search box.
01:52 If we now click ‘Display’, we can control how the component will be displayed.
01:58 Let’s change the caption text to something a little more meaningful like ‘Engine Efficiency’.
02:04 Next we want to display both the grid and the graph and we can do this here.
02:11 If you display the grid and graph we have the option to display them alone above the other, or side by side.
02:19 We are going to choose one above the other.
02:22 Pressing ‘Ok’ will now display the component. We can drag the component around and resize it easily using the mouse.
02:32 Next we are going to go through the same process to display the ‘Fuel Mixture Aim’ table.
02:38 The process is the same although this time we are going to display just the grid of numbers.
02:44 To help us with our tuning, we are going to add a numeric display for our exhaust lambda.
02:49 We can do this by selecting ‘Add’ then ‘Gauge’ and then ‘Numeric’.
02:55 We could just have easily selected a dial gauge though.
02:59 To go along with this numeric gauge, we are also going to add a bar graph to show us what the closed loop fuel trim is doing.
03:07 Lastly we are going to set up a time graph to monitor some key parameters while we are tuning.
03:14 We can do this by clicking ‘Add’ and then ‘Time Graph’.
03:18 Now its just a case of adding some groups and parameters we are interested in.
03:23 In this case we are going to add three groups and display engine speed, coolant temp, inlet manifold temperature, exhaust lambda and fuel mixture aim.
03:36 Obviously you can do just about anything you want and I encourage you to spend some time with these custom worksheets setting them up how you like.
