Dear sir/madam,


Thank you very much for the new release of PSPP. The program is very nice and has many of the SPSS-features that we’re so interested in.

Many compliments to your team!


We are currently investigating adoption of a statistical program within our non-profit care organization. We prefer PSPP but face one major problem that we are currently unable to resolve (in contrast to for instance JASP): how to adapt a graph in PSPP (according to e.g. journal guidelines) and how to export this succesfully to Word?


The graph/chart builder in SPSS is much more extensive than in PSPP and we cannot find a way to basically change graph-aspects, such as colour, lining, legends and adapting text.

In the output viewer it seems impossible to change anything. Moreover, clicking right to copy a single graph is impossible. And export can only be made in pdf, .odt or .text files, but not in general image files to be used in visual design programs.


Taken together, we would very much like to ask you if you could tell us how to basically improve graph outputs in PSPP, and how to easily export them for writing reports and publications? Are such functionalities foreseen in the near future? Or how to do it in the current version?

Without such functionality, daily use in our organization would be rather limited.


Many thanks in advance.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Alain Dekker
