Idiogrid generates three types of output (Text, Graphics, and Printed), and
it provides a feature for saving most numerical output from statistical analyses
as grid data.
Text output generated by analyses conducted in Idiogrid is sent to
the Text Output
child window in the program. This output can be edited in a number of ways.
For example, the font of the text can be manipulated, and text can be deleted
and copied to or pasted from the Windows clipboard. The text can be saved
in ASCII format or as a Rich Text file (.rtf) that will preserve the different
font characteristics. ASCII and Rich Text files can also be loaded into
the text output window of Idiogrid. The decimal precision of newly created numerical
output (but not existing numerical output) can also be changed. Numbers can be
printed with up to fourteen decimals.

Graphical displays generated by analyses conducted in Idiogrid are
sent to the Graphics Output
child window in the program. These displays can be printed or they can be saved as
bitmap (.bmp), JPEG (.jpg), or Windows metafiles (.wmf). Window metafiles are
particularly flexible, because they can be edited in many different Windows
programs such as Word and Powerpoint. Other bitmap, JPEG, and metafiles created
by different programs can also be loaded into the graphics
window of Idiogrid.

Grids can be printed with clinical or research notes. The elements
and constructs are printed with the grid as column and row labels, respectively.
The text in the Text Output
window can be printed as well as the graphs in the Graphics
Output window. Landscape or portrait pages can be printed, and other
printer options can be manipulated as well.
Matrices Saved as Grids
Another useful feature in Idiogrid is the ability to save matrices from
different analyses as grids in the Grid Data window. For example, the construct
and element correlations requested from the Bivariate Statistics option can be
automatically saved as grids in the Grid Data window. Once these matrices are
set up as grids, they can be edited, saved, merged, concatenated, exported, or
subjected to other analyses.
