Sync Windows

The Sync Windows plugin synchronizes mouse motion and input between multiple windows. Thus, an ROI drawn in one window is replicated in all other synchronized windows in the synchronized window set. A synchronization cursor (the red box above) indicates the location of the mouse in all synchronized windows.

Installation

ImageJ: Copy the Sync_Win.jar file from /ij/plugins/download/jars/Sync_Win.jar into the ImageJ/Plugins folder and either restart ImageJ or run the HelpUpdate Menus
command. After this two new commands should appear in AnalyzeTools
Sync Windows and Sync Measure 3D.

Fiji: this plugin is part of the Fiji distribution, there is no need to download it.

Use

The command AnalyzeToolsSync Windows opens a dialog that allows to choose what features should be synchronized:

  • Sync Cursor
  • Sync Channels
  • Image Coordinates
  • Sync z-Slices
  • Sync t-Frames
  • Image Scaling

Clicking on Synchronize All starts synchronizing all windows, clicking on Unsynchronize All stops synchronization.
