SAS University Edition on MAC - Graphics Designer

Hi,

 

Is it possible to access Graphics Designer in SAS Studio running in Virtualbox on a Mac?

 

Thanks.

blah...nevermind, you can't install anything into the VM so that wouldn't work. Unfortunately I think that means SG Designer isn't available. You can add that as a suggestion though under the Idea's (SASware Ballot Ideas) for future inclusion.

PS. I'm moving this to Analytics U and hopefully you can get an official SAS response from @RandyMullis

You're correct.  We weren't able to include the ODS Graphics Designer or ODS Graphics Editor in the University Edition for technical reasons (we would have liked to).  If you are using SAS Studio with a regular SAS license, you'll see selections in the Studio tools menu for installing & accessing these but we removed those from University Edition since they wouldn't have worked.  Sorry for the bad news!

 

The good news is that the folks in graph R&D are working on similar functionality that will be browser based and that should integrate much better than these older stand-alone apps.
