    I was thinking there should be a way to print the summary of a bunch of engine configurations for a given rocket. I've been printing, and cropping screenshots so far, and it's been only OK. Any suggestions? thanks!

    The "design report" portion of what you get when you go to file / print/export pdf gives simulation data, though it's not in as compact a form as your screen shots....

    I don't think you're going to be needing that 1/2A6-2 configuration for a Big Bertha.

    We have a guy in my club who would be happy as a clam flying that. We can debate the relative level of contentment of your typical bivalve, but this guy doesn't like going high. Sticking A's into a Big Bertha and having an apogee at 25 to 50 feet is perfectly fine by him. He has been known to go through an entire box of 24 A8's on big draggy rockets at a launch. By the way, he is high power certified and has a PhD in Aeronautical Engineering. Going low is his thing.

    Back to OP...I agree it would be nice to have this capability, plus a way to export the side view of the rocket w/ the CG/CP info...yeah you can do a screenshot or save out to a pdf file, but sometimes I use the graphics and summary in other documents.

    Export the full report to excel then create your own summary page that looks up the relevant data from the extract and shows it in the format you desire. Should not take long, happy to give you one if you tell me what you want.
