In this version, there are two new menu items in the Waveform Plots window which easily allow you to save the plot as an image.
- Right-click on the data in the plot to display a pop-up menu. Select "Copy" to copy the waveform data where the cursor was when you clicked. You can then paste this waveform directly into a document.
