Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

I use the Microsoft Word for documentation of my structural analysis.
For this purpose, I use the option ‘Print Graphic’ → ‘Save to Clipboard’ in RSTAB or RFEM and import the graphics into Word by using ‘CTRL + V’.
However, after successfully having inserted some figures, nothing happens anymore.
What is the reason for this and how can I avoid it?
AnswerThis problem is not caused by RSTAB or RFEM, but by the clipboard capacity of Word.
When printing the graphics to the clipboard, a maximum resolution of 4000 x 4000 pixels is possible. The maximum image dimension (i.e. height or width) is governing and the smaller side dimension is scaled down.
Thus, if there is a nearly square graphic that is then to be saved with the maximum resolution, the result is a file size of 4000 * 4000 * 3 = 48,000,000 bytes = 48 MB.
Word usually can 'remember' up to 24 elements in the clipboard.
Thus, the clipboard capacity of Word can be reached quickly and the other figures are no longer recorded.
To be able to insert further graphics in Word, it should be stopped and restarted.

AnswerMicrosoft Office text files, if saved as rtf format, can be included in the RSTAB / RFEM printout report. To do this, select the "Text file" function in the printout report via the "Insert" button (see Figure 1).
There are different options to export the printout report.
You can export the data to Word by using the RFT format. The entire printout report including the graphics is transferred. To do this, go to the printout report and select on the menu "File" → "Export to RTF." The created RTF file can be opened directly in Word.
You can also export the report as PDF. To do this, go to the printout report and select on the menu "File" → "Export to PDF".
