Is the ODS Graphics Editor available in SAS on Demand for Professionals?

It is freely downloadable from the SAS support site. Just go to support.sas.com and search for "ods graphics editor download". You will see the instructions to download and install it.

Hope this helps!

Re: ODS Graphics Editor

I'm not sure what's going on.  I found a couple of different places to download it from (all SAS webpages), and downloaded 3 different versions before I got one that would actually install.  Finally, I launched the program and started playing with a graph (vertical boxplots).  Some of the commands seemed to work (adding text boxes,  rectangles, ovals, lines, arrows); others didn't:  Title and footnote and image commands produced no effect.  Attempts to change the color of anything did not work.  Then the program would suddenly disappear.  There would be no icon for it on the taskbar.  None of the changes would be saved.  This is very strange.  I'm trying to learn it to help a student, but I'm not having any luck.

Re: ODS Graphics Editor

Can you post the URL for the location that you successfully installed? That way, I can make sure you installed the correct version. Also, what version of SAS are you using with OnDemand?

Dan:

Here are the sites I visited, and the files I downloaded and tried.  The 3rd file is the one that worked, in part.  I use a Toshiba Satellite M645 laptop computer running Windows 7 with SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3.  I know that there is a more recent version available now, but I've been very busy and haven't attempted to install it yet. 

Thank you for your help!
