Insert images of scopes and XY graphs
This component inserts images of scopes and XY graphs. Examples of blocks for which this component inserts snapshots include:
Scope (and Floating Scope) blocks and the XY Graph block (Simulink®)
Spectrum Analyzer and Time Scope blocks (DSP System Toolbox™)
Video Viewer (Computer Vision System Toolbox™)
Blocks in the Simulink Control Design™ Linear Analysis Plots library (for example, the Bode Plot block)
If the model has not been simulated, scopes are empty. For more information, see the Model Simulation component reference page.
The parent component of the Scope Snapshot determines its behavior.
Model Loop or no Simulink looping component: Includes all XY graphs and scopes in the current model.
System Loop: Includes all XY graphs and scopes in the current system.
Block Loop: Includes the current block when it is an XY graph or scope.
Signal Loop: Includes all XY graphs and scopes connected to the current signal.
If the Scope Snapshot does not have any of the Simulink looping components as its parent, it includes all XY graphs and scopes in all open models.
Report on closed scopes: Takes a snapshot of all scopes in context. This option forces closed scopes to open when the report is generating.
Autoscale time axis: Scales the Simulink scope time axis to include the entire log.
Image file format: Specifies the image file format (for example, JPEG, TIFF, etc.). Select Automatic HG Format (the default) to choose the format best suited for the specified output format automatically. Otherwise, choose an image format that your output viewer can read.
Automatic HG Format (uses the Simulink file format selected in the Preferences dialog box)

Use figure orientation: Uses the orientation for the figure, which you set with the orient command.
Full page image (PDF only): In PDF reports, scales images to fit the full page, minimizes page margins, and maximizes the size of the image by using either a portrait or landscape orientation.
For more information about paper orientation, see the orient reference page in the MATLAB® documentation.
Image size: Specifies the size of the Handle Graphics® figure snapshot in the form [w h] (width, height). In the units text box, select one of the following options:
Invert hardcopy: Inverts colors for printing; changes dark colors to light colors and light colors to dark colors.
Automatic: Automatically changes dark axes colors to light axes colors. If the axes color is a light color, this option does not invert the color.
Invert: Changes dark axes colors to light axes colors and light axes colors to dark axes colors.
Don't invert: Does not change the colors in the image on the screen for printing.
Use figure's InvertHardcopy setting: Uses the InvertHardcopy property set in the Handle Graphics image.
Make figure background transparent: Makes the image background transparent.
Scaling: Controls size of the image, as displayed in a browser. Making an image larger using this option does not affect the storage size of the image, but the quality of the displayed image may decrease as you increase or decrease the size of the displayed image.
Generally, to achieve the best and most predictable display results, use the default setting of Use image size.
Use image size: Causes the image to appear the same size in the report as on screen (default).
Fixed size: Specifies the number and type of units.
Zoom: Specifies the percentage, maximum size, and units of measure.
Size: Specifies the size of the snapshot in the form w h (width, height). This field is active only if you choose Fixed size from the Scaling selection list.
Max size: Specifies the maximum size of the snapshot in the form w h (width, height). This field is active only if you choose Zoom from the Scaling selection list.
Units: Specifies the units for the size of the snapshot. This field is active only if you choose Zoom or Fixed size in the Image size list box.
Alignment: Only reports in PDF or RTF format support this property.
Title: Specifies a title for the snapshot figure.
Block name: Uses the block name as the title.
Full Simulink path name: Uses the Simulink path as the title.
Custom: Specifies a custom title.
Caption: Select or enter a short text description for the snapshot figure.
Automatic (use block description). Uses the Simulink block description as the caption.
Custom. Specifies a short text description for the snapshot figure.
