Exporting Images

Various options are available for exporting image files in SWedge.

Export Image File

The Export Image File option in the File menu allows you to save the active view directly to one of the following image file formats:

  • PNG
  • JPEG (*.jpg)
  • GIF
  • Windows Bitmap (*.bmp)
  • Windows Enhanced Metafile (*.emf)
  • Windows Metafile (*.wmf)

Copy to Clipboard

The active view can also be copied to the Windows clipboard using the Copy option in the Edit menu. From the clipboard, images can be pasted directly into word or image processing applications. See the Copy to Clipboard topic for details.


  • To capture the entire screen to the Windows clipboard, you can use the Print Screen key on your keyboard. This is useful if you wish to capture multiple views in a single image, for example after tiling the views.
  • Pressing the ALT + PRINT SCREEN keys together will capture the application window only to the clipboard (useful if the SWedge program window is not maximized on your desktop).

Black and White Images (Grayscale)

The Grayscale option in the toolbar, the View menu or the right-click menu, automatically converts ALL VIEWS of the current document to Grayscale, suitable for black and white image requirements. This is useful when sending images to a black and white printer, or for capturing black and white image files. The Grayscale option works as a toggle, and all previous colour settings will be restored when Grayscale is toggled off.
