Is there a free student plan available?

Please see the Academic Suite, or email campus@tecplot.com for academic licensing options. You can also download a free trial.

Can a style file be saved for multiple frames?

A style file is specific to a frame and doesn’t reference the dataset. A layout allows you to save properties for multiple frames But also includes reference to a specific dataset.

How do I copy and paste the graphics into Word and PowerPoint documents?

To make a quick copy and paste into your presentation, click in a Tecplot 360 frame to select it, and use ctrl-c and ctrl-v to copy and paste your plot into Microsoft Word or PowerPoint.
