I have a phase vs angle plot (Analysis->Coatings->Phase vs angle) whose values I would like to import into another program (e.g.Excel) for further analysis.  Is there a table of the plotted values available somewhere?  if not, is there a way to get them using a macro?

In a lot of analysis in OpticStudio, you can copy the data to a clipboard from the icon in the toolbar of the analysis.

You can also view the analysis as a text file when you clic on the tab called ''Text'' at the bottom of the analysis.
