Save Drawing as a jpg file


New member
How do I save my drawing as a jpg file, or something like that? I found where to save as a picture, but that gives me a pic file, and so far I have not found anything to open that with.


Screen shot of entire active window can be captured to clipboard using Alt+Print Screen.

OR, Select File > Save a Copy... then set type to TIFF. Use a 3rd party tool to convert image type to JPEG.

This will result in a WYSIWYG raster image of graphics area only.

OR, print to JPEG using File > Print > then set Destination with Add Printer Type to JPEG. This will result in B&W raster image of plot output.
