Bitmap Format

This format (filename extension *.bmp) is similar to another standard Windows graph file format--metafile in that it does not include the graph data and other analytic information (fitted equations, scaling options, etc.) supported by STATISTICA Graph graphics format. However, unlike metafile (which stores dynamic representations ("definitions") of all graph components, allowing selective modifications of lines, text, etc., in other Windows applications), the bitmap format stores only a passive representation of pixels which form the graph. Bitmaps can be opened by other Windows applications, but the customization or editing options of such graph representations will usually be limited to stretching/shrinking, cutting/pasting, and drawing "over" the graph.
