You are certainly welcome.

How timely can you get :-)

SVGIF was removed from Unidata McIDAS-X 7.7.  Instead of SVGIF, you should
use the much more versitile commmand FRMSAVE.  FRMSAVE allows you to save
the frame contents in GIF (tm), PPM, JPEG, PostScript (tm), and  color
PostScript formats.

>I miss something in the announcement of the new version?

This is in the 7.7 Release Notes:


>What is an
>easy way to do a quick save for transfer to other graphic formats?

Check out the online help for FRMSAVE:


The other way to get help is:

o click on the Help dropdown in the MCGUI
o select McIDAS Programs
o scroll the list on the left hand side of the widget that pops up until
  FRMSAVE is visible
o double click on the FRMSAVE link


Talk to you later...

Thanks for the information on saving frames in various graphics
formats.  Sorry I didn't pay more careful attention to the release notes.
