*   Working with Detected Components
Detected components are marked with a triangle in the original chromatogram (see Using Components Detection and Spectra Deconvolution). Because the program calculates the precise retention time (tR) of each component, the component triangle can appear between scan points.
Note  To display a deconvoluted spectrum of a component rather than of a scan, click the triangle that marks the detected component in the chromatogram pane. To display an original scan at the position of a detected component, click above the triangle.
When you pause the cursor over a component triangle, a ToolTip displays the component number, precise retention time, and model ion m/z value that were used in the automated detection and deconvolution processes.
To edit or search chromatographic components in the Components Editor window, click the Components Editor button, .
To process detected components in the Database Manager or in the Spectra Classifier modules, you must select them, copy them, and paste them into the Database Manager or Spectra Classifier windows.
For details about processing detected components, see Processing Data-Reduced Chromatograms or Spectra Classifier Module. .
v
To select a component
Click the triangle on the peak.
A deconvoluted spectrum appears in the scan pane.
You can process this spectrum the same way you would any spectra, for example, search for it in a library or copy it to a Database Manager window.
v
To select a range of components
1.
Click the Select Components button, .
2.
The application makes a strict distinction between original scans and detected components and does not mix them. When selecting a chromatographic region, the application prefers components over scans. When you select a chromatographic region that contains both scans and components, the software selects only the components. When you select a region that does not contain any components, the software selects all scans in that region.
v
To select all detected components in a run
Right-click the chromatogram pane and choose Select > Select All Components from the shortcut menu.

2.
Right-click and choose Copy > Copy option from the shortcut menu.
You can copy a selection, chromatogram, MS spectrum, or an MS tree.
3.
In a Database Manager window, right-click and choose Paste > option from the shortcut menu.

v
To copy the selected components to a Spectra Classifier window
