Bitmaps

A right-click in any displayed plot window brings up a menu, one item of which is "Export".  Clicking this item brings up a dialog for exporting bitmap forms of the displayed plot.  Current options are BMP, PNG, PPM and XPM.  See the "Getting Started" section for more information.

All these formats can also be selected automatically as graphic display modifiers.

 

Retained Graphics

All displays in the PLOTS section are written in compressed form to a disk file with the extension ".PG7".

These files may be redisplayed at a later time by use of the "View" menu item in the "File" menu.  On some systems, this may be accomplished simply by double-clicking the ".PG7" file in the system file manager.

See the "Getting Started" section for more information.

 

Screen Grabs

Any display may also be pasted into other windows programs by using a screen capture facility such as that provided with PaintShopPro by JASC (www.jasc.com).

 

Export Files

The plot types CDF, TABLE, TECPLOT and VTK can be used to export data to other applications for external processing. TRANSFER can be used to transfer data to another FlexPDE run for postprocessing.

See Graphics Display and Data Export or Exporting Data to Other Applications for more information.
