Global Report Options

You can customize the global functionality of STATISTICA Reports using the options offered on the Reports tab of the Options dialog, accessible via the Tools - Options menu. The selections made on this tab determine the defaults whenever you use a report.

Show object tree. Select the Show object tree check box if you want to show the navigation tree by default whenever a report is opened. Note that if you clear this check box and want to view the tree for a particular report, you can display the navigation tree by selecting Show Tree from the View menu.

Save in RTF file format. Select the Save in RTF file format (object tree information will not be preserved) check box to save the report in RTF (Rich Text Format, *.rtf) format. By default, STATISTICA Reports are saved (and viewed) using the *.str file format. Using this format allows you to preserve the tree information with object names (when the report is opened in STATISTICA), so you can use the navigation tree to locate specific items in the report; also, Custom Header and/or Footer information will only be preserved (and applied to printed reports), when the report is saved as a *.str file (they will be lost if reports are saved as *.rtf files). By default, the Save in RTF file format check box is cleared.

Print Spreadsheets as. Use the options under Print Spreadsheets as to determine whether spreadsheets are printed as objects or full-sized spreadsheets when the report is printed. If you select the Objects option button, the spreadsheet is printed exactly as it is shown in the report, using the default dimensions. This means that only a portion of the spreadsheet is printed. If you select the Full-sized Spreadsheets (on separate pages) option button, then the entire spreadsheet is printed using separate pages.

Export HTML images as. Use the options under Export HTML images as to specify a format for saving graphs when reports are saved in HTML format. Select the PNG format option button to save images in PNG format. Select the JPEG format option button to save images in JPG format. For more information on these image formats, see What is the PNG (Portable Network Graphics) files format? and What is the JPEG graphics format?.

Default Spreadsheet size. Use the options under Default Spreadsheet size to set the default Width and default Height of all spreadsheets that are sent to reports. Note that the values entered in the Width and Height boxes are rounded down to the nearest column/row. You can control whether the width and height are measured in inches or centimeters. To measure in centimeters, select the Use metric measurements check box on the General tab of the Options dialog. To measure in inches, clear the Use metric measurements check box (the default setting).

Default Graph size. Use the options under Default Graph size to set the default Width and default Height of all graphs that are sent to reports. Note that because of scaling to preserve aspect ratios, these numbers are approximate. You can control whether the width and height are measured in inches or centimeters. To measure in centimeters, select the Use metric measurements check box on the General tab of the Options dialog. To measure in inches, clear the Use metric measurements check box (the default setting).

Add to Report performs. Use the options under Add to Report performs to specify what action is taken when the button is clicked. Select the Move option button to move the selected file to the report (and remove it from its stand-alone window) when the button is clicked. Select the Copy option button to copy the selected file to the report (the original is left in its stand-alone window). By default, the Move option button is selected.

Font. Specify a Font and font size in these boxes to use in the specified report.
