Here are some guidelines for manipulating DataBlocks:

By default, Signals are created with a single DataBlock.

To insert a DataBlock, select a Range by clicking and dragging the mouse over the Signal Plot Area, right-click on the Range, and select Convert to DataBlock.

Multiple DataBlocks are represented graphically by a green horizontal bar at the bottom of the Signal Plot Area. When the mouse is over a DataBlock in the Signal's Plot Area, the corresponding segment turns red. This bar is shown only when the Signal has more than one DataBlock. The DataBlock number and name are displayed in a tool tip bubble.

Click on the red bar to select the DataBlock. The bar turns blue.

Note that each DataBlock has its own Pass/Fail Criteria properties.

To access the properties of a DataBlock, right-click in the Signal Plot Area, then select DataBlock->Properties, or right-click on the red horizontal bar then select Properties.  Once you have defined the DataBlock, you can also access the properties by double-clicking on the red bar.
