VStar print capabilities

Due to the New England winter storm currently affecting the area, phone coverage at the AAVSO may be much reduced until Wednesday. The staff is still available via email, and we suggest using that method to contact us if you need assistance.

I have spent the past week using VStar and am loving it! Thanks! Two requests for future consideration:

1: Would it be possible to print large light curves over several sheets of paper? I'd love to be able to create a light curve of several thousand data points and print it so it is 5 or 6 landsape pages long.

2: Would it be possible to plot and print color indecies? Say select the B and V filters and plot the B-V values?



Hi George I'm glad to know

Hi George

I'm glad to know you are enjoying VStar.

I've just created a SourceForge tracker for the B-V index suggestion. I thought I had one already but didn't, so thanks.

The multi-page print suggestion is an interesting one. My current thought is that you could:

  • select a custom paper size from the print dialog box, or;
  • save the plot as an image file and use another program to print the plot in a custom way. 

I'm not sure whether I can do anything specific within VStar to enable such custom printing.

Please keep the suggestions and bug reports coming!
