Exporting charts as images

Exporting Macrobond charts as graphics is useful when you need to publish your charts in a universal file format like PNG or SVG, or when you want a static chart that isn’t refreshable.

There are two main ways to do this, depending on whether you want to 1) copy and paste the image in a document or 2) save the image as a file on your computer or server.

1. Copy and paste the chart as an image

  1. start with the Macrobond document open and the chart you want to export selected in the analysis tree
  2. right click anywhere on the chart
  3. select “copy special”
  4. select Bitmap or SVG
  5. as the copy format (depending on your needs)
  6. click OK

The chart is copied and ready to be pasted anywhere.

2. Save the chart as an image file

  1. start with the Macrobond document open and the chart you want to export selected in the analysis tree
  2. go to the file menu
  3. click on “export image”
  4. specify the image format, file name, and directory
  5. click export

The file is saved to the specified directory. By default, the file pathway will also be copied to the clipboard.
