Hi, I am a newbie and am using SimplePlot successfully, but I cannot find a way to keep the plot output. That is, in my reading, I cannot find a way to copy the contents of the plot window so I can use it in another application. Is there a way to do this so I can paste the plot as, say, a Bitmap or Jpeg photo?
Any help wold be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

One simple approach is to press the Print Scrn key on your keyboard.
This copies the whole of the screen to the clipboard. You can then paste this into Microsoft Paint (say),
select the image you want to keep, cut and then paste into a new image etc.

There are third party applications that make the process shorter by allowing you to select a rectangle on the screen before doing the equivalent of Print Scrn.

Given time and effort there is probably a way to do this programmatically but this simple approach may be all that you need. For further details you may need to get the relevant SIMPLEPLOT documentation from BUSS Ltd.

Hi Paul,
Thank you for the prompt reply. I tried the print screen and all went well. I pasted the screen image to IFRAN, which is a neat, free graphics editor, and everything went fine.
