You can either save a picture of the Graphics View in a file or copy it to your clipboard.
Saving as File
If your construction does not use all the available space in the Graphics View, you might want to…
- …use tools Move Graphics View Tool, Zoom In Tool and/or Zoom Out Tool in order to place your construction in the upper left corner of the Graphics View. Afterwards, you may reduce the size of the GeoGebra window by dragging one of its corners.
- … use the selection rectangle in order to specify which part of the Graphics View should be exported and saved as a picture. Therefore you have to hold the right mouse button and drag the cursor over that part of the Graphics View, that you want to export.
You can also create points called Export_1 and Export_2, which will be used to define diagonally opposite corners of the export rectangle.
In the File Menu of the GeoGebra Desktop Version, select Export before clicking on Graphics View as Picture. In the appearing dialog window you may specify the Format, Scale (in cm), and the Resolution (in dpi) of the output picture file. If you are using the GeoGebra Web and Tablet Apps Version, then you can export the Graphics View or a selected part of it by selecting Export in the File Menu. There you can choose between the formats PNG and animated GIF.
Please find more information about the different picture files available in section Export Graphics Dialog.
Copying the Graphics View to Clipboard
