Print Report to PDF in v8

Hi. Using SSI version 8, has anyone discoverred a way to create nice PDFs (or other format) of reports generated via the admin module - that are neat and tidy enough to be sent to clients? The reports generated by the admin module are great but currently lack the ability to be easily/nicely saved or printed "as is".


Many thanks
Russell

Windows includes a snipping tool to take a screenshot and then crop it down.  I typically do this route when I want a picture of anything dealing with a survey and then paste it into a PowerPoint, Word document or PDF.

Thanks Brian. Yes that's an option, but I think requires the table to fit on the visible screen to capture it all in one go, and would be time consuming for a larger report. It would be great to be able to export a large report easily an into a nice format that didn't need excesive editing. Clients often want to see simple frequency counts of all questions during and/or after fieldwork and although I can ask them to generate tables via the admin module themselves - they often also want to be able to export the results (all in one go). I currently generate the tables in thrid party software to be sent to clients. The admin module generates nice tables. It's a shame they can't easily be shared/emailed.

Thanks Russell
