Changing the Export format default in Grapher

To change the Grapher default export format use the following steps for the version of Grapher you're running.


In Grapher 7:

  1. Close Grapher completely.
  2. Open Windows Explorer and browse to the main Grapher user directory. In Grapher 7, this C:\Users\user name\AppData\Roaming\Golden Software\Grapher\7.
  3. Open the Grapher.INI file in a text editor.
  4. In the [Output Processors] section, highlight the export format that you would like to be the default. Cut and paste it to the top of the list. The items are in the order they will appear in the drop down list in the Export Plot dialog. The top item is the default format.
  5. Save and close the INI file.
  6. When you open Grapher the next time and click the File | Export command, the new default will be shown.

 

In Grapher 8, 9, 10, 11, or 12:

  1. Close Grapher completely.
  2. Open Windows Explorer and browse to the main Grapher user directory. This is C:\Program Files\Golden Software\Grapher 8, C:\Program Files (x86)\Golden Software\Grapher 8, C:\Program Files\Golden Software\Grapher 9, C:\Program Files (x86)\Golden Software\Grapher 9, C:\Program Files\Golden Software\Grapher 10, C:\Program Files (x86)\Golden Software\Grapher 10, C:\Program Files\Golden Software\Grapher 11, C:\Program Files (x86)\Golden Software\Grapher 11, C:\Program Files\Golden Software\Grapher 12, or C:\Program Files (x86)\Golden Software\Grapher 12.
  3. Open the gsio.ini file.
  4. In the [ExportFilters] section, highlight the export format that you would like to be the default. Cut and paste the entire line to the top of the list. The items are in the order they will appear in the drop down list in the Export dialog. The top item is the default format.
  5. Save and close the INI file.
  6. When you open Grapher the next time and click the File | Export, the new default will be shown.

 

Grapher 12 automatically saves the last format and uses it the next time. So, if you don't want to change the gsio.ini file using the above directions, simply click File | Export and export to the desired format. The next time you export a graph, it will use this format.
