FAQ: How do I Change the Behavior of My Q's Auto Save Function?

FAQ: How do I Change the Behavior of My Q's Auto Save Function?

By Equinosis Logo Equinosis Staff | Updated on | Equinosis Staff, FAQ, LL2017, Software Navigation

The user can change the default behavior of automatically saving each report and instead be prompted upon closing a report as to whether you want to save it as a PDF. It is a good idea to save PDF reports as a record of the data at the time it was collected. Future software versions may alter the appearance of the report when viewed or if the data is re-analyzed.  To change from auto-saving each trial report to being prompted to select which report to save, go into Additional Tools Menu>Options. Select “Prompt before saving reports”.

User Tip: Manage Horses by Attending Veterinarian Within a Practice

User Tip: Manage Horses by Attending Veterinarian Within a Practice

By Equinosis Logo Equinosis Staff | Updated on | Equinosis Staff, FAQ, LL2017, Software Navigation

We recently received a request to be able to search evaluations by veterinarian (in a multi-vet practice). As we always try our best to incorporate user requests, this will be incorporated into an upcoming version of Lameness Locator. However, in the interim, there is a fairly easy work around to allow you similar functionality using stable management. Under Manage Stables, create a stable name using each of the veterinarians’ names in the practice. Then, add horses that the veterinarian manages to that “stable”. A horse can be added to more than one stable, allowing you to accommodate horses that may...

FAQ: Hind Limb Outliers – Do You Need to Worry About Them?

FAQ: Hind Limb Outliers – Do You Need to Worry About Them?

By Laurie Tyrrell-Schroeder Laurie Tyrrell-Schroeder, DVM | Updated on | Data Interpretation, FAQ, LL2017, LT Schroeder, Software Navigation

Lameness Locator® includes an automated outlier removal algorithm for head movement asymmetry; however, pelvic movement outliers are currently not removed. This is because significant hind limb outliers are quite uncommon, given the lower natural stride to stride variability of pelvic movement. But occasionally a horse will do something odd, such as stumble or kick out.   The program stride selection (which is based on the median stride rate), may still include this/these errant strides in the analysis if they are of the same stride rate as other strides, thus including a potential hind limb outlier.  Typically, a single outlier...

Easy. You just go to "Options" and "Allow manual stride selection".  Step 1:  Go to "Additional Tools" (upper right corner) and select "Options" Step 2: Check the first option, "Allow manual stride selection" Step 3: Close window. You can then go back to that trial and  select “perform new analysis“ on the right hand side of the highlighted trial. It will then provide the same stride selection slider bar in the first step of the analysis that was available in previous versions of LL.  To increase selection, drag slider bar to the right.
