|Can I download the
data file of a spectrum from the database in JCAMP or SPC format?
collections of spectra in the FTIRsearch.com database are licensed from a number of
separate sources. Each has its own unique requirements for protecting the copyrights of
the spectral data in their collections. In order to protect these copyrights,
FTIRsearch.com only allows downloading images of the spectra, not the actual spectral data
Thermo Scientific is working with the individual copyright holders to
address some of these issues and it is possible this can be added as a future feature for
some of the library collections in the FTIRsearch.com database. If you are interested in
having this added as a new feature, please let us know by filling out a request in the

|How can I save a set
of search results?
Currently, your last set of search results is automatically
saved in your account on the FTIRsearch.com server. You can logout and come back at any
time and review the results of your last Text or Spectrum Search.
FTIRsearch.com is currently evaluating the feasibility of adding a new feature to allow
members to save the results of any search they choose within their accounts and review
them at any time. If you are interested in using this feature, please let us know by
filling out a request in the
Feedback form or by sending an
email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
|How can I paste the
search results, hit list, or spectra into another application like MS Word?
Windows, the simplest way to do this is to use the Alt+PrintScreen keys to grab a copy of
the entire browser window as an image on the clipboard. This can be pasted into nearly any
other Windows application that can accept bitmapped images.
Another alternative is to use the mouse pointer to highlight all the text in the Print
Preview page. Then, right click on the text and choose "Copy" from the pop-up
menu. This will copy all the hit list text onto the clipboard. Right click on the spectral
data image to copy the picture of the spectra to the clipboard.
Some browsers (such as Microsoft IE5) let you save a copy of the entire web page to
your local hard disk as a file. You can then insert a picture or file item into your
document and select either the HTML file (for the hit list info) or the GIF file (for the
spectral data image).
