Sam, worth noting that if you paste an Excel plot into Powerpoint and right-click on the image, there is an option to "Save as picture", you can select png or jpg.

When you say "John Wilding’s 290 tooth large wheel. The teeth of the latter being of conventionally accepted cycloidal design." I assume you mean the circular approximation to cycloidal addendum?

I'll PM you on this topic.

Thank you for spotting my frustration. Your edit is much appreciated.


Rather set in my ways, I've never used Powerpoint as an editing tool.

Re your PM, it's 5am and I'm still waking up and haven't got around to reading it. Actually, I was in the middle of responding to comments in this thread including the addendum radius issue.

Time to finish my cuppa tea.


PS Just read your PM John. Thanks for the thought, I'll reply by (direct) email.

You can save as picture in Word as well.

Thanks Neil,

Is that much different to my using CTRL-C of the graph and then CTRL-V(ing) into Word?

That's what I did and the only way I could think of doing it.

Having said that, I discovered that I had no difficulty with my earlier attempts while dealing with those extended Meshing threads.

This is a tired old 84 yo brain down here.

Thanks Neil, never had cause to try it, a useful tip.
