The Measurements list and the Digimizer image file format DGZ

In Digimizer, you can save image in a special file format with file extension DGZ. The files in this format do not only contain the image in a compressed format (without quality loss), but also the measurements performed in this image.

When you re-open such file the measurements are added –if not already there– to the current measurements list, and you can add, delete, or modify the measurements.

All measurements performed in Digimizer have a global unique identifier number. These identifiers prevent that re-opening the file results in duplicates in the measurements list.
