Diamond: Simple Export of Structure Pictures using Copy/Paste

Diamond structure pictures are generally created to be finally used in some other software, like a word processor (e.g. Microsoft Word) or a presentation program (e.g. PowerPoint). The fastest and also most obvious way to transfer a Diamond structure picture e.g. to Microsoft Word is to copy the structure picture in Diamond into the Windows clipboard and to paste it into Word afterwards. Please follow these steps:

  • In Diamond, please display the structure picture, and make sure that no objects are currently selected inside.
  • Select the "Copy" command from the "Edit" menu.
  • In Word, move the cursor to the point at which you would like to insert the structure picture.
  • Select the "Paste Special..." command from the "Edit" menu.
  • In the dialog which is opened, please select "Bitmap" for "Paste as", then press "OK".
  • The structure picture as it is currently present in Diamond will be copied into your Word (or PowerPoint) document.

Note: If you follow this prescription, the resolution of the picture in the Word document will be poor, since it is equivalent to the screen resolution (which is 96 dpi (dots per inch) in most cases).
