How can I export only a subset of my Surfer plot to an image file?

To export only a small portion of the plot, you can either change the map limits or export the current view.



Method 1: Changing the map limits

You could change the map limits to only show the area you want, and then export. To do this:

  1. Select Map in the Contents window.
  2. In the Properties window, click the Limits tab, and specify the x and y minimum and maximum coordinates of the area of interest.

  1. Click the Scale tab and specify the size of the map you want.
  2. Click File | Export to export the subset area of your map.


Method 2: Export current view only.

Zoom into the area you want, then choose to export only that view. To do this:

  1. Zoom in so the plot window shows just what you want to export.
  2. Click File | Export.
  3. At the bottom of the Export dialog, check the box next to Current view only.

  1. Give your file a name and a type then click Save.
  2. Set the desired export options and click OK to create the export file.
