Alternatives to Opening Serial Plotter and Serial Monitor at the same time

Hi, I know that we are unable to open serial plotter and monitor at the same time but i need to show both the graphs and values.

Is there any way i can do so?

Please help. thanks!

You could use software serial for the plotter. It's never a great idea but, if you are using an old pen plotter, it should be adequate.

You could use software serial for the plotter.
I think that would need to connect to a TTL-USB cable to connect it to the PC ?

@purbluish, another option is to write your own PC program that takes a single stream of data from the Arduino and uses it to produce a graph and text output

I have never used the Serial Plotter (I am still at Arduino 1.5.6) so I don't know what it can or can't do. If you want to display a graph and the numbers that form the graph you may be interested in my EzScrn demo.

...R
Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

Yes, probably. I keep forgetting about that serial plotter. I have had a look at it, but it isn't worth remembering.
