Create Surfer Base Map command is grayed out in Didger.

There could be a couple reasons why this command is grayed out.

  • Make sure you have Surfer 7 (or higher) installed on your computer. This command will not work with Surfer 6 or earlier.
  • This command will also be grayed out if you are in Didger 2 or 3 and have a raster project which only contains a calibrated bitmap and no digitized objects. In this case, the command will be grayed out since there are no objects to export to Surfer.
  • Verify that you have run both Didger and Surfer as administrators so their paths are written to the registry and they are able to find one another.
  • If you have Surfer 10 and Didger 4, and you uninstalled any previous versions Surfer before installing Surfer 10, Didger 4 is looking for a registry key that Surfer 10 does not write.
