Hi Tony,

Data analysis software release (3.4, HP-UX and Linux) allows you to 
browse MaxShield raw data files in graph 2.94 without MaxFilter 
processing. Please note that this option is only for browsing the data, 
and you should run it through MaxFilter before starting the analysis.

Best regards, Jukka
