Printing a View


Graphical contents of a view can be printed from the Print Current View entry on the File menu of the Main Application window.

Contents of Gallery can be printed from the Print Current Gallery entry on the File menu of the Gallery co-primary window.

A Maximized version of a selected view of Gallery may be printed either from the Print Selected View entry on the Edit menu of the Gallery co-primary window, or from the pop-up menu when the right mouse button is clicked in a selected Gallery view.

Phaser views can also be saved as image files (.jpg .png or .bnp) to a file from the menuitem View -> Save View as Image File. You can convert a .jpg file to a .eps (for inclusion in a Latex document) file by using the free program jpeg2eps.exe (for Windows) that can find on the Web. Also, you can print a View to a .ps file by simply checking the Print to a File box on the printing dialog window. Make sure you install a ps printer on your system ( you do not have to have the printer).

When preparing a view for printing, it may be necessary to change the background color (to white for ink conservation) and the colors of the initial conditions, especially for non-color printers. A bounding box can be included in the image by turning on Display Graph Border option.

The size of the printed image can be adjusted by varying the margin setting from the Printer Page Setup entry on the File menu of the Main Application window.
