Hi there, I am new to the OpenStudio platform. I have been trying to find a way to export the OpenStudio Results Summary that contains plots, bar graphs and such. I would like to learn if there is a way where this report can be converted to a PDF or an Office document (word, power point or excel). I want to share these results with people who do not have the OS software nor the skill to run a simulation. Any insight will be highly appreciated. Thank you!!

You can open the html file in your browser by navigating to the < model_dir >/run/6-UserScript-0/report.html. From there, if you're on a Mac at least, anything you can open in the browser you can print to a pdf. I'm not so sure about windows.

Your path might be slightly different if you have other measures in the simulation.

You can also just email that html file to someone and preserve the interactive features. These tips apply to most other reporting measures as well.

Thanks Kyle and Dan! Your answer and comment gave me something to look into a bit deeper. I installed a "PDF printer" app -I have Windows 7 which by default sends print to document to XPS format- and I can share these results using the PDF format. Also, I shared the html file which as Dan said preserved all the interactive features. Thanks again!
