Copy Peak List

Copy Peak List

Note that this is new for Version 3.1 - in Version 3.0 you will observe different behaviour

You can copy a peak list by going to Spectrum / Copy Peak List..., by dragging a peak list from the sidebar onto a spectrum in a SpectrumDisplay or by using the shortcut CL. In all cases a pop-up will open in which you can confirm the Source Peak List and the Target Spectrum. Note that the target spectrum can be the same spectrum to which the peak list already belongs. If you have dragged a peak list into a Spectrum Display containing several spectra, the first one will be selected as the target spectrum by default (you can't copy a peak list to multiple spectra in one go, unless you create a macro to do so).

The Copy Peak List pop-up will give you several options for how to copy your peaks. If you select the lower Copy all existing properties option, the new peak list will essentially be a clone of the original one, i.e. the assignments, position, line widths, height and volume will be copied over as they are. The only parameter that will be adjusted is the Signal/Noise since the new spectrum may have a different noise level.

The alternative is to Copy position and assignments only. If you select this option without any of the additional options, then your new peak list will only contain positions and assignments and the other properties will be blank (technically, they will be set to None). Additional options let you Snap [the peaks] to extremum and/or Refit [the] peaks (usually using a Gaussian fit, unless you have selected Parabolic in your preferences). Selecting these options will move your peaks slightly away from their original position, but often this is what you want; the peaks will now be at the true peak positions in the new spectrum (provided there is indeed a peak/maximum there). Alternatively, you can Refit [the] peaks at position which will leave the peaks at the original position, but do a fit to give you information about the height and linewidth. This may be something you want to do for a T1 or T2 time series where ideally all peaks should be fit at the same position. Finally, you can also opt to Recalculate [the] volume of the peaks during the copying process if you think you will require these.
