Can you add some kind of "resume from the last test" after the error occurs?
I don't know - it depends on whether the error is recoverable. I suspect
it is not - i.e. that the whole instrument driver and application state would
have to be saved, torn down, re-built and restored. This would be
a lot of work and very tricky to test and maintain, all to work around
an error that shouldn't happen. Far less work and a better result to fix the
Also, my i1 has to re-calibrate on every calibration. Isn't there a way to
the calibration values? I have to remove it from the screen and have to place
on the calibration spot (did it 4 times last night). I'm afraid it will break
The point is that the instrument drifts, and so needs recalibrating.
The initial calibration on each application start can be avoided
by using the -N flag, which is useful if you are using tools in
quick succession, but there is a timeout as well, and if it's too
long since the last calibration the calibration can't be avoided.
(Generally the timeout is much longer than it should be - I've seen noticeable
drift in the black of an i1pro from cold over a couple of minutes.)
