Export features and some questions

Hi guys,

I love using Avogadro since I discovered it a few months ago and it is
improving at an amazing pace. I am looking forward to 1.0.
Next step, I would like to export the nice pictures created with
Avogadro for post-processing. Here come the questions:

  1. jpg-export does not work for me. (“Cannot save file xxx.jpg”)
  2. bmp- and png-resolution is rather low. Can that be changed?
  3. In the vector-graphic output, labels are not shown. In fact, there
    are holes in the plot where the labels are on the Avogadro screen.
  4. Is it possible to include labels in the PovRay-plot?

Two more unrelated questions:

  1. Is it possible to change the number of significant figures for bond
    paramter labels?
  2. Is it possible to change the colours and radii for individual atom sorts?
  3. Is it possible to change the default directory for the
    "open"-dialogue? Or at least make Avogadro remember the last opened folder?

Thanks in advance
Ralf.

You don’t say if you’re on Linux or Windows. If on Windows, you can
right click on the shortcut and set the working directory.

Thanks in advance
