Save to file: Specify a file base name for the graph and HTML files to be written. SDMetrics will extend the base name with element type names, metric names, and the proper file extension. For example, if you specify the base name "C:\graphs\model", exporting all graphs will generate files named "C:\graphs\model_Class_NumOps.svg", "C:\graphs\model_Package.html", and so on.

Finally, to export the graph(s) as specified above, press the "Save graphs" button. The "Close" button closes the dialog without exporting the graphs.

Note that exporting a large number of graphs in PNG or JPG format can take some time, you can monitor the progress on the status bar of the main window.
