Waveforms can be customized to suit your own needs and improve productivity.
For example, you can view more signals at the same time by changing the size of the waveform to a smaller size. Another example is to highlight a certain value by changing the color of that value. You can also group signals or have visible grids.
Please note Active-HDL has two waveforms, Accelerated Waveform Viewer and Standard Waveform Viewer. You can select what waveform to use under menu:
