Export graphs

Shortcut: F10


When the top window is a graph window, you can select Export graph in the File menu (or in the popup menu that appears when you richt-click on the graph window's title bar) to save the graph as a Device Independent Bitmap (BMP), PNG, GIF (Graphics Interchange Format), or TIF file, or as a PowerPoint slide (*.pptx).

On Windows versions prior to Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012, support for PowerPoint files (*.pptx) requires Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 (a free download from Microsoft).

To control the height and width of the saved image, select the "Options" button in the "Export graph as" dialog box.

  • Free: you can select the height and width independently.
