Save transient profiles and graphs

Graphs and profiles created from the transient results viewer can't be saved as they can with standard graphs and profiles.

Combine transient results

Natively there is no direct way to do this with the Transient Results Viewer, but there are other methods to accomplish this.

Method 1: Combine by including additional scenarios

Time Histories has the option to include additional scenarios, but it would be limited to a single Time History and Graph Type.

Extended Node Data is limited to the same Node and Graph Type.

Method 2: Use the old-style (Java) transient results viewer

This is useful in cases where you'd like to compare transient profile/time series results between scenarios.

1. Switch to the old-style (Java) transient results viewer using the steps in the following article.

2. Open time history graph (or profile plot) number 1
3. Right click in the middle of the graph and choose Save As > HAMMER graph - save the .grp file somewhere
4. Close graph (or profile plot) number 1 and go to File > open and reopen it
5. Right click on the frame of the graph and choose "copy data"
6. Open graph (or profile plot) number 2, right click on the frame and choose "paste data (+)".

Note: you may have to adjust the Y axis scale if the pasted data doesn't fit in graph number 2.
