Printing and saving results

using File|Export, and data or graphs can be copied to the clipboard using edit|copy
in the normal Windows fashion.
Copies can be made to the Windows clipboard or to a file by selecting Edit|Copy or,
in the case of graphs, by clicking on the Copy button above the graph. Images of
graphs can be stored as bitmaps, metafiles, enhanced metafiles or TEE files (see
Export Tee Chart
). For Windows users who wish to include a graph in another
document the enhanced metafile format is to be preferred as it will allow the image to
be changed in size without loss of resolution of the text.

Graph display options
Many aspects of your graphs can be altered and the results printed or exported using
the series of buttons arranged above the graphs.
They are from the left: Normal cursor, Rotate, Move, Zoom, Depth, Edit Chart, Print
and Copy.
Rotate moves the graph around its horizontal and vertical axes (by clicking and
dragging the cursor on the graph), and can be used in conjunction with the
Depth function, which increases the 3D aspect of the graph, for greater impact or
clarity.
Move will shift the entire graph to any required position in the window. (see
Zooming and panning on graphs
)
Zoom increases and decreases the magnification of the graph   click/drag down and
left to decrease it, up and right to increase it. (see 
Zooming and panning on graphs
)
The Depth function increases the 3 dimensional aspect of the graph by rotating it
around its vertical axis.
The Rotate and Depth settings can be returned to zero (i.e. reducing the graph back
to 2 dimensions) by clicking the Edit Chart button, selecting the 3D tab on the Chart
menu, and unticking the box marked  3 Dimensions .
Under Edit Chart, all aspects of the graph can be altered to suit the user: titles,
series labels, points, colours, shading, axes, and so on are all adjustable.
Pressing Print will bring up a preview of the printed graph, where orientation and
margins can be adjusted as required, and the printer settings accessed.
The Copy function copies the graph to your computer s clipboard, where it can be
pasted into another application, for instance a graphics program or word processing
package.

Tips for improving graphical output
It frequently happens that the default ordination graph will have overlapping labels or
labels that overlap the axes. To stop the labels overlapping the axes enter the
graph options menu
 and manually select the maximum and minimum to be a greater
or lesser value than the default for each axis. It is sometimes possible to reduce the
overlap of labels by using the 3D options. Alternatively, it may be useful to display
the ordination from different directions so that different labels lie on top. Generally it
is best to avoid large species or sample names. For large figures consider labelling the
species 1,2,3 etc and putting a key in the caption.
