Export spectra to ASCII
This function allows storing mass spectral data in a standard two-column ASCII data format. The function export ASCII is available from the File menu bar and can be used to export individual original or pre-processed mass spectra (not peaklists!). Select first the spectrum to be exported from the listbox denoted with MicrobeMS spectra ID`s and chose then export ASCII → original spectra or pre-processed spectra. This will open a standard file browser dialog box which allows indicating a file name and to navigate to the location on the hard drive to store the spectrum.
The extension of the ASCII file will be *.txt. The spectrum is stored as a two-column vector of m/z values (first column) and the respective MS intensity values (second column). Delimiter is space.
