Options - Documents: Reports

In the Options dialog box, select the Reports tab (located under Documents) to access options to customize the report functionality of Statistica. The specifications made on this tab will be used as the default operating conditions whenever you open Statistica. For more information on reports, see Report Overview, Report Window Overview and Report Tree Overview.

Show object tree. Select this check box if you want to show the navigation tree by default whenever a report is opened. Note that if you clear the check box and then want to view the tree, you can open the navigation tree by selecting the Show Tree check box on the Report tab in the Display group. When a new report is created, the navigation tree will not be displayed until an object is added to the report.

Save in RTF file format (object tree, header, and footer information will not be preserved). By default, Statistica Reports are saved (and viewed) using the *.str file format. Using this format ensures that the report will be opened in Statistica, thus allowing you to use the navigation tree to locate specific items in the report. Select the Save in RTF file format check box if you would rather save the report in RTF format.

Display warning when printing Spreadsheets as OLE objects. When you start to print a report and this check box is selected, the Output Options dialog box will be displayed where you can specify whether to print spreadsheets as objects (as they are sized in the report window) or to expand each spreadsheet to its full size and print the full contents of the table area of each spreadsheet (each spreadsheet on a separate page).

Print Spreadsheets as. Use the options in this group box to control how embedded spreadsheets are printed when you print your report.

Objects (as they are sized in the Report window). When this option button is selected, spreadsheets are printed as objects (as they are sized in the report window) and only the part of the spreadsheet that is displayed in the report window will appear in the printout. Note that this also applies to the Statistica Reports saved as .rtf files, and opened in other applications (or printed/saved in those applications). By default, the segment of the spreadsheet printed from the report window is approximately 3 inches long by 4 inches wide (to see more, double-click on the object to display the scrollbars), but you can adjust this setting (see Default Spreadsheet size below). You can also increase or decrease the parts of the individual spreadsheets that will be printed (or shown in exported .rtf documents) by resizing (with the mouse) the displayed areas of the individual spreadsheet objects in the report window.

Full-sized Spreadsheets (on separate pages). Select this option button to print spreadsheets at full size, including all variables and cases.

Export HTML images as. Use the options in this group box to control what format your images (graphs, imported pictures, etc.) are saved as when you save your report as HTML.

PNG format. Select this option button to save your images in PNG (Portable Network Graphics) format.

JPEG format. Select this option button to save your images in JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) format.

Default Spreadsheet size. Use the boxes in this group box to control what amount of the spreadsheet is displayed as an object when you insert the spreadsheet into the report.

Width. Enter the default spreadsheet width.

Height. Enter the default spreadsheet height.

Default Graph size.  Use the boxes under Default Graph size to control the default size of a graph inserted into a report.

Width. Enter the default graph width here.

Height. Enter the default graph height here.

Add to Report performs.  Use the options in this group box to specify whether you prefer documents to be moved or copied to the report when you click the Add to Report button.

Move. If this option button is selected, click the Add to Report button to move a document in a stand-alone window to the workbook. The stand-alone window is deleted.

Copy. If this option button is selected, click the Add to Report button to copy a document in a stand-alone window to the workbook. The document also remains in the stand-alone window.

Font. Select a font from the drop-down list to specify the report font. Select a font size from the drop-down list or type a number in the Font Size box to specify the report font size.

Create printer resolution Clipboard/Report/Metafile images. This option determines the line thickness for rendering the main components of the graphs used when generating metafile representations of Statistica Graphs. Metafile representations are created for the Clipboard when Statistica Graphs are pasted as metafiles (and not as Statistica active objects) to other applications, such as MS Word. They are also used when Statistica Reports are printed or exported as RTF documents, and when you save Statistica Graphs in the Metafile (.wmf) format in order to edit them as vector images in other programs.

In most typical applications, leave this option selected (i.e., set at low resolution, the default setting) in order to create directly printable representations of Statistica Graphs in other programs. Note that, depending on the resolution of your display, these images may not look as "clean" on the screen as when this option is cleared (i.e., when high resolution metafiles are generated). In the latter case, however, the metafiles will be generated using high resolution rendering that, on most high-quality printing devices, will create output with too thin lines (e.g., with a single device pixel lines on a 1200 DPI printer).

Note that this option does not affect the quality of graphs saved/printed as Statistica Graphs files/objects, where the precise translation of the requested line thickness into printed or displayable resolution is not limited by compatibility concerns resulting from using the Metafile (.wmf) representation.
