How to prevent Easy Chart from updating

I messed up the Start/End time on an Easy Chart element. As soon as I open the page containing the chart in the Vision module the chart tries to find data super far in the past. It then freezes the entire development environment. I’ve tried turning off communications. How can I fix this mistake without deleting the entire page.

Hold the shift key down while you right-click on the window. Select the “Copy XML to Clipboard” option and paste into a plain text editor (I recommend kate or notepad++). Find the EasyChart instance and adjust the start time setting (I would pick something far in the future). Copy back to the clipboard. Use shift-right-click to paste back into Ignition.

Thank you this is a great trick.
