Data from the many “benchmark test”, “example” and “shape” data files can be accessed from the screen and can then be copied onto the clipboard, from where the data can be inserted into a new data file.
Close a run before displaying output information in notepad, etc, or else some of the last lines might not be copied.
At present it is not possible to copy data directly from the Help pages (that is, these pages cannot be put on the clipboard), although we hope that this will be possible soon. In the meantime any data on the Help pages is also in the “benchmark test”, “example” or “shape” data files.
Data in a ray output file can be used in excel by using the option to separate numbers by commas and changing the file ending from .dat to .csv.
