Chapter 2. Usage

2.1. To Save the View as an Image

To open a file, choose File->Save as Image... to display the Save as image dialog. Select a file name and, if wanted, a file type and a size, then click OK. Default image size is 300 pixels wide and 300 pixels high.

Supported types are VRML, Postscript, Encapsulated Postscript, PDF, and all types that GdkPixbuf can export. You'll find an exact list in the drop-down file type menu.

If no file type is specified, GChem3d tries to determine the type from the file name. If it does not succeed, the default type (VRML) will be used.

An appropriate extension will be added to the file name if none is found.

PostScript and PDF files can also be obtained with the Print command.
