Getting Output

Studio Express provides options to print out formal reports as well as exporting the data from the Results grids as well as saving the plots on the Canvas to image files.

Printing Reports

Studio Express offers stylish and easy-to-read printed reports. To print, simply click the [Reports] button on the Ribbon Toolbar. A document viewer automatically appears allowing you to preview the report before sending to your printer.

The report that you produce depends on the task you are using as well as which results grid row has been selected. For example, if the Profile option has been selected on the Orifices tab, the report will contain the Profile view as shown below.

If the computed results are current, a Calculation Sample grid is included which corresponds to the selected row on the Results Grid.

Printing to PDF

Studio Express does not provide a “PDF” print option directly but you can certainly employ any of the third-party PDF Printer drivers available on the market. When using these, you may need to turn OFF any image down-sampling and/or JPEG compression in the pdf driver’s printing preferences from the Windows printer settings. This will maximize the quality of the Plan, Section and Profile drawings.

Exporting Results

You can export the Results Grid by right-clicking on the grid and selecting either “Export this grid…” or “Copy this grid” from the pop-up menu.

When exporting, you’ll have the option to save it as a .csv, .txt or .html file. Copying the grid copies it to the Windows clipboard.

Saving Charts

You can save any plots on the Canvas by simply right-clicking on the chart with your mouse and selecting, “Export this chart…” File options include .jpg, .png, and .bmp.

Right-click on the plot and select, “Export this chart…”.
