Printing Results

To print out a SEER*Stat results matrix, first click on the matrix window to make sure it is active, then open the File menu and select Print. Adjust your printer settings as desired and click OK.

The print-out of a matrix contains everything that the print-out of the corresponding session would, plus the tables for the matrix.

The following options, which affect the appearance of the printed matrix, can be found on the Preferences dialog.

Use Shading When Printing

When this option is checked, shading will be added to the column and row titles of the printed results matrix to improve visual clarity. However, if you plan to make photocopies or send a fax of the printed matrix, it may be best to turn off this option.

Note that this option only concerns shading in row and column headings. When you choose to shade records by person on the Matrix Options dialog, those records will be shaded regardless of your selection on the Preferences dialog.

Print User-defined Variable Definitions

This checkbox allows you to choose whether or not to print the full definitions of user-defined variables used in your analysis. If selected, the title of the user-defined variable, the standard variable on which it is based, the groupings, and all values associated with each grouping are listed along with the session information on the print-out.

Note that if this option is unchecked, SEER*Stat will still list the title of any user-defined variables and the standard variables on which they are based on the print-out.

Start Each Matrix Page on New Printed Page

If your matrix tables span multiple pages, by default, SEER*Stat will print as many matrix "pages" on a printed page as possible, to conserve space. Check this option to require each new matrix page to be printed on a different piece of paper.

Print Preview

Use the Print Preview command on the File menu to see in advance how the print-out will look. You can navigate through the preview using the controls on its toolbar. When you are finished, click the Print icon to print the session, or click Close to return to SEER*Stat without printing.
